"The people, both the other guests and all the staff, the knowledge of all the staff and speakers, the venue, the organization, the food, the programming organization and variety, the accommodations. I loved it all, but the staff/guest ratio was superb! There was not a thing I did not like." - First Time Visitor, 2016

"The people, organizers, leaders, and participants are all terrific. It's like being part of a family. The venues are all beautiful, even in the cold rain." - Repeat Visitor

"Came the first time for the birds, came the next 2 times for the friendships we made at NRBNF and knowing we would have quality time and quality looks at some really special birds in beautiful and unique habitats. We already have it on our calendar for 2017." - Helen & Gary
