Bird lovers from across the nation are roosting at Oregon Institute of Technology this weekend...
Klamath Audobon Society President Kathy McKeehan says this could be the biggest 'Winter Wings Festival' yet, with over 700 people registered... "It's bigger - we've got more kids that come through, we've got art that's absolutely fantastic, and a photography contest - and we just had a lot more people from all over the place."
There's a little of something for everyone, from the photography enthusiast to the young at heart.
'Duck Whisperer' Charlie Thurston says it's also a good chance to meet some feathered friends up close: "We enjoy showing the birds to people, to all the kids that come and pet them and everything, and have a good time with them."
The Winter Wings Festival is a natural fit for the Klamath Basin. Festival volunteer Robert Kinkead says that bald eagles are one of the reasons he chose to live in Klamath Falls: "I have always been fascinated with bald eagles, and this is the only place that I can get to see them year round without moving to Alaska."
The 33rd annual Winter Wings Festival will continue at OIT through Sunday. You'll find details on the web at: www.winterwings.org
