From April into May, the hardwood forests surrounding the New River Gorge National River in West Virginia serve as a valuable stopover habitat for warblers and songbirds. It is also the destination for birders seeking a summer-camp-like vacation and close camaraderie with fellow bird lovers attending The New River Birding And Nature Festival.
All the festival trips are staffed with two expert guides to provide world-class instruction as they introduce you to the wide range of habitats and highlight the more than 100 bird species found in the lush countryside of southern West Virginia. Combine all that with the festival's terrific speakers, warm hospitality, unique accommodations, and tasty food and this is one birding vacation you'll want to repeat.
Eagle Optics will be on hand with great binoculars, spotting scopes, tripods, and optics accessories that help you make the most of all your birding experiences. Be sure to stop by and see us!
