Join us January 17-20, 2014 for the 18th Annual Festival
We will be working over the spring and summer to organize next year's Festival, and registration for it will open October 1, 2013. During these months, we will be updating content on this website, so come back and see us now and then.
To stay in touch with the Festival and birding in SLO county, 'like' our Facebook Page.
We appreciate every one of our 540 registrants, 80 leaders, 80 volunteers, Family Day participants, special vendors, and staff who played and worked together on our Festival. We had fun; we hope you did too.
Here's a list of birds seen during the 2013 Festival (PDF download).
Every Martin Luther King weekend over 450 (540 in 2013!) birders visit Morro Bay, California, a Globally Important Bird Area, to see, photograph, and learn more about birds. Morro Bay is located halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco on the Pacific Flyway. The area offers pristine beaches, beautiful state parks, an excellent natural history museum, panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and, best of all, thousands of birds. Over 200 species are usually sighted during the Festival weekend -- 211 species in 2013.
