    (WASHINGTON COUNTY, Utah) - Vermillion fly catchers are among the birds you'll likely see at this year's Winter Bird Festival. The festival will be held January 23rd - 25th in St. George and at bird watching hot spots in Washington County.

    Southwest Utah habitats can attract over 375 species of birds during the year. The habitats range from desert, forest, and riparian. During the St. George winter months many waterfowl migrate through and stop at our lakes and reservoirs. Raptors especially, find this region an ideal location for the cold months. Whether you are a beginner or longtime birder, you will find many attendees that are eager to share their experiences and enthusiasm for birding.

    Participants can attend any of the Festival’s multiple presentations, workshops or field trips for a minimal $5.00 - 3 day general admission pass per person (children 17 & under are free). All the activities, except for the evening presentations, are based at Tonaquint Park and Nature Center. In between all the activities, guests can browse through the Dixie Arizona Strip Interpretive Association’s bookstore, grab a snack or hot drink, or purchase a 2014 St. George Winter Bird Festival collectible event t-shirt or hat at the Red Cliffs Audubon Society’s booth.
