Officials from the Presque Isle Audubon Society say they expect around 150 people to attend the different events this weekend.
And today bird watchers like Betty Bowen of Jamestown flocked to Presque Isle for the first day of the three day Festival of the Birds.
Bowen had this to say about the event "The birds here are fabulous I've been coming here for years"
There were beginner bird watchers and those who spend countless hours with their eyes to the sky.
The festival runs through May 11th and is hosted by The Presque Isle Audubon Society.
