Check out our new events this year! We offer Falmouth, Outer Cape and 3 Gardens Birding, Pelagic Photography with Blair Nikula and Captain Ken, and a post-festival trip to Cuttyhunk Island. We even added more workshops! Click here for all trip descriptions.
There will be something for everyone whether you’re a novice or an experienced birder. Our nationally known featured guest speakers, David Sibley and Greg Miller, will each be leading excursions along with our local experts to a variety of habitats around Cape Cod.
Join us Friday afternoon for your choice of workshops and then attend our evening Pizza Social with David Sibley. David will present “The Psychology of Bird Identification” and host a book signing following the presentation. The Sibley Guide to Birds Second Edition will be available for sale.
Our Saturday night dinner is sure to please while Greg Miller delights us with stories from his big year birding experiences as well as his opportunity to consult on the movie The Big Year with Jack Black, Steve Martin, and Owen Wilson.
Of course the Festival wouldn’t be complete without our popular Vendor Marketplace on Friday and Saturday where all your birding needs and more are available to you in one place! Festival Headquarters this year will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Hyannis.
On Sunday, September 21, families can enjoy Family Day at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster, MA. Two live raptor shows will be offered as well as many FREE activities for the whole family.
Mission Statement: The mission of the Cape Cod Bird Festival is to promote Cape Cod as a birding destination focusing on educating individuals and families as to the wonders of our fall migratory bird populations.
