Feria de aves sudamerica

Join the Bird, Merlin, and Birds of the World teams at the Feria de Aves Sud América/South American BirdFair from Oct 26 – 29, 2023!

The twelfth annual Feria de Aves will be held in the famous Mindo Cloudforest region of Ecuador. We will be holding workshops on eBird and sound recording with regional friends and partners, and we invite all regional reviewers in the area to attend our special reviewer meeting. In addition, Birds of the World (BOW) invites you to the stand to learn how this deep, scholarly resource can elevate your birding and research. 

Are you going to the Bird Fair? If so, we look forward to meeting you and hope you’ll attend one of our workshops and stop by our stand and say hello!
