Birders and nature enthusiasts from all across our tri-state region will gather for the annual Festival Of The Birds next weekend at Presque Isle State Park.

The executive committee for the 6th annual Festival Of Birds at Presque Isle is working hard to assure that this years event is a resounding success.

The festival begins May 9th with events planned throughout the weekend.

Organizers hope to attract far more than 100 participants for lectures, workshops and field trips at the height of the spring migration.

The Presque Isle Audubon Society in partnership with the Pa. Department of Conservation and Natural Resources holds this event and there are still a few spots open if you'd like to register.

The weekend of events kicks off with a wine reception and the highlight of the weekend is the keynote speaker, author and prolific blogger and podcaster, Sharon Stitler also known as "Bird Chick"
