Feathers and Festivals
Posted by: Carolyn Mulac

Legend has it that each year the swallows return to California's San Juan Capistrano Mission on St. Joseph's Day, March 19th.  The "Fiesta de las Golondrinas," a month-long celebration in the city of San Juan Capistrano, includes  a Swallows Parade.

A look at  the American Birding Association's  Birding Festivals Directory  (searchable by state, country and month), proves that swallows aren't the only of our feathered friends festively commemorated:  In the next few weeks birders and others can look forward to the White Pelican Homecoming Celebration, the Great Louisiana BirdFest , the Prairie Chicken Festival , the Lesser Prairie Chicken Festival  and the Dubois Grouse Days.

Other sources of avian information on the Web include Bird Links to the World, Bird Checklists of the United States ,  and the National Audubon Society .
