April 29 - May 4, 2013
Thank You! to all the guests, guides and support staff for making NRBNF 2013 a happy success. In the next several days the 2013 checklist will be posted, as well as new "Birder Chatter" on our Who We Are page.
The New River Birding and Nature Festival takes place in and around the New River Gorge National River. Administrated by the National Park Service, this area is the heart of the upland, hardwood forests that Cornell Lab of Ornithology has identified as a crucial stopover habitat for the continued survival of species such as Golden-winged, Blue-winged, and Swainson's Warbler, as well as the Scarlet Tanager. This bird watching festival highlights more than 100 bird species on a variety of birding tours.
A friendly birding vacation for everyone, this week long event features guided birding and nature excursions, world-class speakers, the finest collection of guides at any festival destination anywhere, tasty food, and a back-porch atmosphere unmatched by any other birding festival. Signature guided bird watching experiences include the opportunity to visit a wide range of habitats, world class instruction for those wanting to enhance their birding skills, and the best guide-to-guest ratio on the festival circut.
We are excited to show you our 2013 field trip and guide additions. Great new additions, same great atmosphere!
