TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — The fifth annual Hagerman Bird Festival took place the last weekend of April. The Hagerman Valley Foundation, puts on the Hagerman Bird Festival every year. With the only exception being 2020, at the start of the pandemic.

This long-awaited event included an array of bird activities, such as birding hikes, workshops, speakers, and kayak birding trips. There was also a mixture of free and priced activities.

This year, the festival had childcare options and more projects for the kiddos. Children were able to build birdhouses, craft with bird seed and dissecting owl pellets.

Organizers of the event say, they feel lucky to live in an area that can provide this kind of adventure.

“We’re delighted to be living in a small community with lots of fresh air, and sunshine. We all love the birds and I am hoping this will be a good start back to birding, for a lot of people,” said CJ Holmes, who is President of the Hagerman Valley Foundation.
