Birding Festival Appearances

Me – Altadena, CA

As part of the Zeiss Birding Team I regularly get to appear at birding festivals across the country. I’m mainly there to talk to people about optics, but part of the fun of festivals is that I regularly get to lead walks and give presentations on everything from raptor identification to how to pick your first pair of binoculars. Of course the best part of festivals for me personally is getting to catch up with friends from across the country, so if you’re in town drop by the Zeiss Sports Optics booth and say hello.

2019 Festivals

Southeast Arizona Birding Festival (Tucson, AZ) — August 7-11 (website here).  I’ll be talking about my international hawkwatching adventures and co-leading a couple of tours.

Sonoma Optics Fest (Sonoma, CA) — September 14 (website here). A one day event with optics retailers, local artists and non-profit organizations represented at this trade show.

Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival (Harlingen, TX) — November 6-10 (website here). Great place to visit at any time of the year. Let’s hope that continues to be the case #NoBorderWall

2020 Festivals

San Diego Birding Festival (San Diego, CA) — February 27-March 3 (website here). I’ll be leading walks and may have a few photos in their brochure again this year.
