The Boston Birding Festival

Coming soon in 2022. Boston, Massachusetts

THE BOSTON BIRDING FESTIVAL, ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR THE SPRING OF 2021, WILL BE RESCHEDULED FOR 2022. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR NEW DATES.

“If you take care of the birds, you take care of most of the big problems in the world.”
—Thomas Lovejoy

Massachusetts in May boasts one of the largest and most diverse arrays of bird species in the country from migrating wood warblers and nesting songbirds, to seabird colonies and pelagic vagrants.

The Boston Birding Festival will celebrate the region’s exceptional birds and diverse habitats with an exciting four-day program of field trips, talks and workshops, along with exhibits, family activities, and a trade show.

From the early fight against the millinery feather trade to the formation of the American Ornithology Union and its role in the landmark Migratory Bird Treaty Act—from Thoreau to the Sunrise Movement, Massachusetts has been the cradle of conservation and environmental leadership in America.

The Festival honors that legacy with a program designed to inspire and equip attendees to be informed and active caretakers of birds and the planet.
