The 23rd annual Oregon Shorebird Festival will be held August 28-30, 2009 at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology in Charleston, Oregon.

This year the Festival will be a joint venture with the annual meeting of the Oregon Field Ornithologists. There will be field trips during the day and presentations in the evenings, suitable for all levels of birding interest.

One evening presentation is by birdsong recordist Geoff Keller: "My Most Memorable Field Recording Experiences." Another presentation will be by well-known birder Jim Danzenbaker: "A Workshop on the Nuances of Shorebird Identification."

There are two pelagic trips this year. The Bird Guide, Inc. will lead an 8 hour trip on Saturday, and a 5 hour trip on Sunday offshore to see albatrosses, shearwaters, jeagers, auklets, and other seabirds and marine life. Separate advanced pre-registration for the pelagic trips is required at The Bird Guide Pelagic Trips web site.

For more information and registration for the Oregon Shorebird Festival, please see the Oregon Shorebird Festival web page.
