Organizers of the popular Southwest Wings Birding & Nature Festival are busy planning the event, a series of workshops and outings for serious birders who want an intensive birding experience. This event will focus on birds in the area present during the spring nesting season. Birders may see species like the Elegant Trogon, Violet Crowned Hummingbird and up to 5 species of owls.

The outings in this festival will be similar to trips available during Southwest Wings. The trips consist of small groups of no more than 8-10 people. This will allow the best possible experience for birds and birders alike.

The spring event will give birders a chance to witness nesting behaviors when birds are extremely active. Small groups will give birders more personalized attention with trip leaders and will minimize impact on the birds and natural surroundings.
