Several years ago, the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission recognized several park trails in Palm Coast as Great Florida Birding Trails, thanks to the City’s ideal bird watching opportunities along its extensive trail system. Fast forward to present time, and now Palm Coast is truly for the birds. The First Annual Birds of a Feather Fest was introduced to the community in February 2015. An entire weekend is devoted to teaching participants about birds, with workshops, presentations and nature walks designed for adults and youths, both amateur and professional. Many activities are free of charge. The Festival was developed and organized by a City employee who had attended a bird fest in another Florida city and truly believed that Palm Coast’s amenities and natural setting would be a perfect fit to host our own bird event. He was correct. The event keeps growing and has taken flight to become a highly anticipated annual event.
