Registration for the 2014 Spring Wings Festival is up and running!
Just click on the 2014 Spring Wings Festival Brochure link to the right of this post to check for current availability alongside detailed tour descriptions. Then, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the total number of seats you'd like along with the tour name and time, and we will send you a PayPal invoice. Make sure to check your Spam folder in case the invoice seems lost. Your seats will be reserved for 24 hours. If you don't pay within that time, we cannot guarantee their availability.
Seats will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. I will warn you that Tuesdays are packed for the web manager, so if you submit a request Tuesday, you may not receive an invoice until late Wednesday. So don't worry--if you requested first, you will get your seats first.
Thanks for your patience and we're looking forward to seeing you all this year!
Keep checking the blog for the latest information.

Good News Fellow Birders!
We hope to open registration for this year's festival by February 28. In the meantime, we have a few more details concerning this year's festival.
We plan to offer a FREE Wood Duck Nest Box Workshop on Friday afternoon. During this time, families will be able to build their own nest box while learning about the program. They will also enjoy the opportunity to watch an air cannon trapping demo at the Churchill County Fairgrounds!
On Friday evening, the Lady Falconers will be presenting Amazing Birds of Prey.
As far as new tours and events this year...we are pleased to announce Vultures of the Valley presented by NDOW Nongame Biologist Jenni Jeffers. This presentation will take place Saturday afternoon and will highlight migrating turkey vultures.
We are also pleased to announce the Historic Fallon Tour led by horse-drawn wagon! Participants on this low-impact tour will enjoy learning about the history of the area along with viewings of the area spring migrants hiding out along the way.
One Saturday afternoon, Cabelas will be giving an expanded optics workshop. The PBS Nature program will also be showing an Orignal Duck-u-mentary family movie. Kids wild crafts and outdoor projects will also be available for people of all ages to enjoy.
It's going to be a great year! We can't wait!

We have a date!

On Friday afternoon, we hope to host a hands-on workshop as well as offer a few tours. We will finish off the day with an evening presentation.
