Horicon Marsh Bird Festival

May 9, 2019 - May 13, 2019

Horicon Marsh Bird Club invites birders of all skill levels – as well as anyone who enjoys the great outdoors – to the 22nd Annual Horicon Marsh Bird Festival (May 9th-13th, 2019). This weekend-long event provides family-friendly activities and educational experiences designed to showcase Horicon Marsh’s role as an important habitat for birds and wildlife.

Highlights of this year’s Bird Festival include a keynote speech from Karla Bloem, director of the International Owl Center in Houston, MN; ‘The Big Sit’, a daylong marathon to identify as many species of birds as possible from a fixed location; and ‘Mom and Me, Dissecting Together’, a new event where we’ll discover what local owls are eating through hands-on pellet dissection (a truly unique way to spend some time with mom on Mother’s Day). See our schedule of events for more information.
