Where Rhythms of Nature Meet Rhythms of The Blues

Do you think the only birds you will see at the beach are gulls? Not so. Horned Grebe, Bufflehead, Surf Scoter, Black Oystercatcher, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Great Blue Heron, and Bald Eagle are all common to our area. The upcoming 9th Annual Birding and Blues Festival, where rhythms of nature meet rhythms of the blues, will give you several opportunities to catch a glimpse of these birds and a lot more!

Come celebrate nature with your head, heart, and soul in Pacific City April 13, 14, & 15. Once again headquartered at the Kiawanda Community Center on Cape Kiwanda Drive, the festival will offer three days of guided field trips, indoor seminars and workshops, kayak trips, great regional blues bands, and the feature film "The Big Year!

This year's featured speaker will be photographer Terry Steele. A Northwest Oregon resident, Terry has been sharing his passion for the creatures of nature for over 20 years. His presentation will focus on birds found from the Oregon Coast to the Gulf Coast.

Pacific City has some of Oregon's most spectacular estuaries, rivers, bays and ocean shores. Be introduced to the abundant wildlife in Oregon's Three-Cape region. In the evenings, relax, feast, tap your feet, dance, and celebrate life.
