5 million shorebirds can't be wrong. Plan to join them in Cordova for the Copper River Delta Shorebird Festival May 2-5, 2019.
Join us in Cordova
We invite you to join the mass migration of Pacific shorebirds, raptors, waterfowl and songbirds. Their shoreside respite is framed against the pristine backdrop of coastal glaciers and mountains, the breathtaking vista that we call home. Come outfitted with your binoculars, spotting scopes, cameras, sketch pads and pencils and leave with a heart full of memories. Copper River Delta Shorebird Festival, Alaska's original bird festival.
