The Winter Wings Festival is produced by the Klamath Basin Audubon Society and takes place each year over Presidents' Day Weekend. It's one of the longest running bird festivals in the nation. A small gathering that began as the Bald Eagle Conference over 38 years ago has now become an incredible event for bird enthusiasts of all stripes.

Over 500 people have registered for the festival in recentyears to enjoy presentations, workshops, field trips, and free family activities. The festival has featured phenom birders Kenn Kaufman, Pete Dunne, Scott Weidensaul, and Jeffrey Gordon, and the photography program continues to improve with participation and support from Canon USA.

The Klamath Basin, located in southern Oregon and northern California, is a major migratory stop on the Pacific Flyway. Over 80% of the birds that use the Flyway stop over in the Klamath Basin. Six national wildlife refuges covering nearly 200,000 acres attract an impressive variety of waterfowl and raptors, many in astounding numbers.
