The Second Annual St. Bernard Bird Festival is set for

Friday, April 29 from noon till 5 p.m. and Saturday, April 30

from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m. at the Islenos Complex on Bayou Road.

Last year many of the colorful species of migratory birds

were spotted during the Bird Festival.  Many of these birds,

in their glorious array, can only be seen during the time period

when the Festival is being held.  Most of the most colorful of

the birds are returning to North America from their winter

homes in South and Central America.  In addition to spotting

the birds, the Festival will also have again specialists from

Audubon LA who are trained and licensed to catch and band

these beautiful birds.  Visitors can witness this activity and get

a very close view of these magnificent creatures.  Experienced

local birders will also guide visitors through trails in Eastern

St. Bernard to search for and identify the various species

of birds.  The local Art Guild and local woodcarvers will display

their beautiful art work depicting many of these migratory

birds.  Several indoor programs will be presented,

including birding tips, re-forestation, and local animal wildlife.
