Morro Bay Annual Bird Festival

Over 400 birders come to Morro Bay each year to participate in the Annual Winter Bird Festival. This year’s festival was last week-end, January 15-18th and included workshops, boat excursions and other events.

Morro Bay is a designated State and National Estuary, located on thePacific Flyway and is considered a globally important bird area. We consistently rank in the top 5 % of the Audubon Society’s Annual winterbird count, with over 200 species of birds who either winter or live hereyear round.

I am a beginning amateur birder- if such a designation exists. Although I don’t have binoculars- yet- with all the beautiful birds that I see on my walks- I am drawn to learning a bit more about them.

Here are a couple of snapshots of some of the more frequently seen Morro Bay coastal birds.
