Godwits at the Arcata Marsh.
Get your godwits about you, birders — the 2021 Godwit Days Spring Migration Bird Festival
is here! The annual event is presented virtually this year via Zoom and runs April 16 through 18
live-streamed sessions, pre-recorded lectures and more. Sessions include the Big Hour at the Arcata Marsh with Rob Fowler of Fowlerope Birding Tours and Gary Bloomfield, Curiosities and Oddities in the Humboldt State Wildlife Museum: A Tour with curator Tamar Danufsky, and “The Language of Birds” keynote lecture by Nathan Pieplow. The winner of Humboldt County’s Bird of the Year for 2020 and winners in the 18th annual student bird art contest will also be announced. Although free, festival goers are asked to drop a few clams to keep the festival alive and flapping for years to come. Get the full schedule and sign up at www.godwitdays.org
