Onondaga Audubon To Host Fourth Annual Bird Festival May 9

MEXICO, NY – Bring your family and friends for a fun day all about birds and nature: Come to Onondaga Audubon’s fourth annual Bird Festival May 9, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Derby Hill Bird Observatory.

Bird watching, nature walks, and kids’ activities are scheduled throughout the day.

Experts will be on hand to answer your questions about birds, bird behavior, and bird migration.

You can get up close and personal with Rick West’s live hawks and owls and learn all about the fascinating world of raptors.

There will be educational exhibits as well as booths with hand-crafted walking sticks, bird feeders, maple products, wildlife photography, artwork, and other items for sale.

You can also take a chance in our prize drawing and enjoy some of the tantalizing fare offered by Chomppers Smokin’ Barbeque.

And, of course, the star performers – eagles, hawks, vultures and other wild birds – will be flying overhead.
