I had every intention of documenting this years Bird Festival events with pictures but found it difficult to lead tours and presentations and take pictures at the same time. These are some of the few I was able to take of birds.
Below is a list of birds seen at Farmington Bay during the four field trips I either lead or assisted with these include a tour of Glover Ponds where we spotted the Snowy Plovers in the playa west of the ponds, Those Wild Wetlands workshop for kids we identified 26 Species in 15 minutes and several boys were able to earn their Bird Study Merit Badge, Bus Tour of the Turpin Unit lead by Rich Hansen Manger of Farmington Bay, and Birding for Families and Dutch-oven Dinner.
This was my 7th year involved with the Bird Festival and it was our 3rd Birding for Families and Dutch-oven Dinner.
