It’s BIGGER and BETTER than EVER! I know this phrase gets thrown around a lot, but in this instance, it really is true. This will be my third year to attend Ohio’s birding festival, The Biggest Week in American Birding, and I absolutely love it. I tell everyone I know they should attend, so I’m telling you, too! Registration just opened, and you’ll want to sign up early if you want to attend the best field trips and events.
In honor of registration opening up, I thought I would highlight my 5 favorite things about Biggest Week in photos. I hope you’ll consider registering and joining us this year. The Birds & Blooms team will be there May 9-11, and we’d love to meet you!
#1: The Kaufmans! Kenn and Kimberly Kaufman make Biggest Week awesome. Plus, they’re contributing editors of our magazine!
#2: The warblers! The variety will awe you.
#3: The people! This is a bird walk from a couple of years ago. Every year we go to Biggest Week, we meet more great people.
#4: The experiences! From watching bird-banding demos to going on unique field trips, there’s always something to do.
#5: The fun! Last year we made a video about Biggest Week (click on the photo to go to the link). This year, we’ll be hosting a karaoke night.
