Alabama Coastal Birdfest

© Faulkner State Community College • Fairhope • Alabama • 2007
This year’s BirdFest, Oct. 6-8, is earlier and a day shorter. As many of you have requested, we’re giving you Sunday off to bird on your own, see other area attractions, or travel. Also new this year is a $15 registration fee for all registrants. As a paid registrant, you may attend the pre-BirdFest Orientation, Presentation & Welcome Reception (no reservations required) and you will receive a copy of the 2011 poster, featuring the photography of Sherry Stimpson Frost—in all, a $40 value. We’ve also added a full schedule of workshops at 5 Rivers—all for no extra charge.

As always, this year’s BirdFest features tours to prime birding spots along the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail, including Fort Morgan, Dauphin Island, Weeks Bay, the Mobile-Tensaw Delta, Bayou La Batre, Forever Wild Grand Bay Savanna, bayfront parks in Daphne and Fairhope, and more. Knowledgeable and entertaining guides will lead you through some of the best birding spots in North America as we explore our coast on foot and by boat. Bus trips leave from 5 Rivers Delta Resource Center, located on the Causeway between Mobile and Spanish Fort.

Location:   Daphne, Alabama, USA
Dates:   October 6-8, 2011
