St George Winter Bird Festival

The annual St George Winter Bird Festival will be held Jan 29 - Feb 1, with events in and around the city of St George in SW Utah.

While northern Utah shivers under winter weather, St George will have spring-like conditions and an abundance of birds to observe.

The festival offers field trips, workshops, presentations, kids' activities, a photo content, banquette and other activities.

See the festival brochure for more information and registration forms. Below are excerpts.

Amid our beautiful red rock landscape you will have the opportunity to take part in 4 days of birding activities. The 6th Annual St. George Winter Bird Festival is centered around the Tonaquint Park and Nature Center – field trips, presentations and workshops. Our Festival is designed for all levels of birders - beginning to advanced. You will find leaders and attendees that are eager to share their experiences and enthusiasm for birding.

Southwest Utah habitats can attract over 350 species of birds during the year. St. George’s Winter months attract waterfowl migrating through and stopping over in our lakes and reservoirs and raptors find this is a good place for the cold months.
