Detroit Lakes' annual Festival of Birds attracts hundreds of visitors to the community each year.

Now in its ninth year, the festival will once again take place from May 18-21. The four-day schedule will include activities for youth and adults, birding enthusiasts and the merely curious.


Field trips, seminars, workshops demonstrations and even a "birder's bazaar" are all part of the planned festivities.
