Hey Washington Bird Folks,

While this may be slightly off topic from in-state sightings, with the
change of seasons in the air, I wanted to bring attention to a spectacular,
non-commercial, federal land agency supported, professionally led,
educational birding and wildlife festival happening May 15-19th in the
Yellowstone Area.

The first annual *Spring into Yellowstone: Birding and Wildlife
Festival*in Cody, Wyoming offers an opportunity to discover the iconic
birds and
wildlife of northwest Wyoming: from sage grouse to grizzly bears, and
everything in between. The five-day festival will feature guided field
trips and interactive seminars led by some of the biggest names in birding
and nature photography, as well as some of the top regional biologists.
Each evening, take in Buffalo Bill country's finest restaurant fare, check
out bird and wildlife-themed art at the galleries, tour the spectacular
museum, and partake in evening festivities.

For those of you not acquainted to the region, the Greater Yellowstone
Ecosystem covers more than 20-million acres, representing one of the
largest in-tact temperate zone ecosystems on earth today. From our base in
historic Cody, Wyoming, explore a landscape of rugged mountains,
picturesque river valleys and high desert plains. These lands and waters
provide refuge to hundreds of wildlife species, including rare trumpeter
swans, sage-grouse, bighorn sheep, herds of elk, wolves, grizzly bears and
native fish.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions and thanks for
keeping me apprised of your birding observations in the region.



Regards,

Charles Drimal
