Following up on the successful Vallarta Bird Festival held earlier this year, organizers have announced dates for next year’s event scheduled for March 7 through 10 at Vallarta’s Botanical Gardens. The mission of the Vallarta Bird Conservancy and Festival is to promote conservation, education and awareness of tropical and migratory birds in the Puerto Vallarta, Banderas Bay and Cabo Corrientes areas for the benefit of locals and visitors from around the world.
Banderas Bay is a hidden jewel on Mexico’s Pacific Coast for bird watchers that is increasingly enjoyed by enthusiasts visiting our destination. Activities for all ages are planned during the four-day event and will feature lectures from world-class ornithologists, along with scheduled activities from sea level to over 4,000 ft., allowing bird watchers to view a broad variety of birds in their natural habitat. Highlights expected to be seen during these professional guided tours include spottings of the Citroline and Elegant Trogan, the Squirrel Cuckoo, the Red-Breasted Chat, the Mexican Hermit Hummingbird, and the Military Macaw.
Complete details of the activities, lecturers and costs will be announced this fall. Keep watching the website for updates.
