Hawaii Island Festival Of Birds (3rd Annual)
The program will include expert guest speakers, a trade show for outdoor and birding equipment, a children's corner, bird-themed arts and crafts fair, photography workshop, a birding film festival, time to interact with Hawaii Island naturalists and bird experts, and guided field trips on land and sea. Friday and Sunday activities include guided birdwatching field trips along the newly created Hawaii Island Coast to Coast Birding Trail, and guided boat trips out of Honokohau Harbor to watch seabirds. The 90-mile Trail crosses Hawaii Island from Kona on the west coast to Hilo on the east coast, from rainforest to lava plains. While birds will be the focal points, elements of Hawaii Island's unique plants and trees, geology, history and of course, scenic view points will also be highlighted.
