The 17th Annual John L. Borom Alabama Coastal BirdFest 2020 has been canceled due to COVID-19. Mark your calendar for the 2021 Alabama Coastal BirdFest: Oct. 6-9, 2021!

The perfect birdwatching event, BirdFest regularly happens the first weekend of October as birds start to make their way along the Alabama Gulf Coast during fall migration.

The event is free and for all ages. And all nature lovers can rejoice here as opportunities abound to view dolphins, alligators, wildflowers, and more. Some of the most popular birdwatching locations include Bayou La Batre, Dauphin Island, Fort Morgan, Forever Wild Grand Bay Savanna, Gulf Shores, and more. 

Workshops will take place at the 5 Rivers Delta Center, and there is a Bird & Conservation Expo that is free and is hosted at the Coastal Alabama Community College in downtown Fairhope.
