Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival

Have you ever looked at a bird soaring overhead or heard a bird singing in your yard and wondered, what exactly is that?  Well, the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival is coming to Cape Canaveral January 24th – 28th,  and it is an excellent way to learn about birds, wildlife and conservation.  

This Festival, in its 25th year, happens to be one of the largest and most popular in the birding world.  You can sign up for a walk, drive, or boat trip with some of the nation’s top birding experts to see, hear and learn about our feathered friends and other Florida wildlife on one of our amazing field trips  The Festival’s trips are held in all types of terrain and habitat from local yards to wildlife preserves, many not normally open to the general public.  There is even an offshore trip to visit ocean dwelling birds known as Pelagics.

Birding is a fast growing, popular and fairly inexpensive hobby with added benefits of a little fresh air, exercise, and a break from  screen time.   Florida is a wonderful place to go birding with over 300 species of birds that spend all or part of their lives in the state.  Amateur birder, Linda remarks ”it was difficult to catch the shy birds at my feeder or in the neighborhood to be certain I knew what I was seeing so, I signed up for a couple of the SCBWF trips and keynote speaking events and found it to be a real eye opening experience. I am excited to return to the festival this January. I plan on catching up with my new birding friends, and want to check out the awesome photography events, a new camera just may be my next purchase.”

Great festival guides have shown our attendees hundreds of species. The Expo Center offers an amazing array of birding related products, optics, fascinating bird trips worldwide and direct access to Florida conservationists.  Many attendees find amateur and professional level binoculars, scopes and cameras. Come check out our Launch Your Optics Experience! The Festival Expo Center is free to the public. With a festival registration fee you receive access to all the presentations offered.
