Our 2020 program planning is complete and available on our program tabs. Additional registration tools have been added to the registration tab to help you plan your trip. Plan to register early for the best choices. Capacities of sessions range from 6 to 350 (keynotes); the smaller field trips may sell out almost immediately on Dec. 7th. If you don’t get your first choices in December or January, check back in early February to see if cancellations may have created openings in some of your desired choices.
Please note that you will be directed to a secure payment website after completing your registration. No personal details or transactions take place on the Winter Wings website.
We are so excited about our three keynoters (Nathan, Gerrit and Rosemary) that will be joining us over Presidents’ Day Weekend – all national leaders in the birding and photography community. In addition we are featuring Max Waugh, an internationally acclaimed wildlife photographer, and Brian Woodbridge, famed Swainson’s Hawk researcher. West Coast Falconry will be participating in several photography and children’s activities. Look for programs on Golden Eagles, Swainson’s Hawks, American Kestrels, and Great Gray Owls for the birding participants and Bald Eagle photography and blinds photography for the photography participants as examples. For spouses, we have new cultural activities to acquaint you with the Klamath Basin including an agricultural tour. In summary, we couldn’t be more proud of the 2020 line-up!
The Winter Wings Festival is produced by Klamath Basin Audubon Society volunteers with support from sponsors, grants, and participant registration fees. Proceeds from this festival support local grants to teachers and other entities for outdoor education and community nature-related projects.
Typically the reported species at the festival number about 120 – 133. Here is our 2019 festival bird species count.
