I (Eugene Duley) plan on spending a week at this festival and will be glad to talk with anyone that thinks they want to go. Email me at or call at (661) 816-4955.
Attending one of these festivals is a great way to find out about Birding. One can get a lot of coaching on birding knowledge and learning the photographic technics necessary to capture great photos.
The Pacific Flyway ranks as one of the greatest migratory pathways in the entire world, stretching from the Bering Strait off the coast of Alaska to the steeps of Patagonia in South America. Millions of birds representing hundreds of species use this great avian highway.
The area attracts a huge wintering population of waterfowl and raptors. A local favorite among these is the majestic Snow Goose, with the estimated overall population exceeding 5 million.
In Chico and the surrounding communities, they celebrate this magnificent spectacle of nature with the Snow Goose Festival on the Pacific Flyway.
The field trips start on Wednesday, January 25th and goes through Sunday the 29th. Event contact is Kathy Trevino. Registration (530) 520-2872 or (530) 345-1865 (office)
