Based in Cape Charles, Virginia, the Eastern Shore Birding and Wildlife Festival is the perfect opportunity to experience the wonders of wildlife – from the keynote presentation to unparalleled guided tours, boat trips, nature hikes and much more.
The festival provides an incredible opportunity to catch sightings of species you may have never seen before. As one of the most important migration stop-overs on the East Coast, millions of songbirds and butterflies and thousands of raptors will converge here on their long journey south. With the natural splendor provided by the Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge and Kiptopeke State Park, this is a migration celebration you’ll always remember.
Brian Sullivan, a project leader for eBird, will give the keynote. He has written and consulted on various books, popular, and scientific literature on North American birds, and is a co-author on The Crossley ID Guide: Raptors, and the forthcoming Princeton Guide to North American Birds.
