The Orcas Island Chamber of Commerce is presenting its Orcas Island BirdFest on April 30 - May 3, 2015. BirdFest is a celebration of birds!  Nature tours, workshops, art exhibits and a scientific symposium; all focusing on the health and wonder of birds and grassroots solutions.  Orcas Island offers an unforgettable experience showcasing the natural splendor of the San Juan Islands.

Celebrate birds at BirdFest's All Things Birds and Beautiful Art Show and Sale. This juried art exhibit brings the best bird art together in a variety of media sure to please everyone's style.

This year’s scientific symposium delegates will deliberate on the status of the birds in the Salish Sea.  The scientific panel will create a grassroots plan, which individuals can do to contribute to the health of birds and hence their own lives.

Marzluff, author of a number of books including In the Company of Crows and Ravens; Gifts of the Crow: How Perception, Emotion and Thought Allow Smart Birds to Behave Like Humans; and his new book Welcome to Subirdia: Sharing Our Neighborhoods with Wrens, Robins, Woodpeckers and Other Wildlife.
