Ramsey Festival celebrates birds of spring

The third annual Ramsey County Bird Festival – Where Birds and People  
Meet is a free celebration of springtime birds, running from May 1  
through May 4, 2008. The volunteer- run festival highlights the many  
interesting birds found in St. Paul and suburbs and is designed to  
attract families and others to birding, America’s most popular  
outdoor activity.

Walks are scheduled to give a bird’s eye view of areas where swans,  
eagles and loons nest and where migrating warblers feed. Other tours  
will look at resident birds like cardinals, blue jays and chickadees.  
A low-cost dinner will feature nationally known bird expert, speaker  
and humorist, Al Batt.   His talk will be: Bird Stories: Finding  
wings of joy and feathered miracles.  Snippets from a life gone to  
the birds.

Also on the festival’s schedule is a day full of displays, demos and  
hikes at Harriet Alexander Nature Center in Roseville, a birding  
adventure by canoe and a tour of the rarely open Arden Hills Army  
Training Site (formerly known as the Twin Cities Arsenal). A special  
ceremony will be held a AHATS finalizing the site and adjacent Rice  
Creek as an Audubon Minnesota Important Bird Site. Bird walks and  
events, most of which are free and open to everyone, will be led by  
the area’s birding enthusiasts.
