Here's a list of birds seen during the 2015 Festival (PDF download).
Every Martin Luther King weekend over 450 (over 600 in 2014!) 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 -- 204 species in 2014.
