Following up on the successful Vallarta Bird Festival held earlier this year, organizers have announced dates for next year's event scheduled for March 7 through 10, 2013, at Vallarta's Botanical Gardens.

The mission of the Vallarta Bird Conservancy and Festival is to promote conservation, education and awareness of tropical and migratory birds in the Puerto Vallarta, Banderas Bay and Cabo Corrientes areas for the benefit of locals and visitors from around the world.

Banderas Bay is a hidden jewel on Mexico's Pacific Coast for bird watchers just now being discovered.

Activities for all ages are planned during the four day event and will feature lectures from world-class ornithologists, activities from sea level to over 4,000 ft. allowing bird watchers to view the birds in their natural habitat.

Highlights expected to be seen during these professional guided tours include spottings of the Citroline and Elegant Trogan, the Squirrel Cuckoo, the Red-Breasted Chat, the Mexican Hermit Hummingbird, and the Military Macaw.

Complete details of the activities, lecturers and costs will be announced this fall.

Early registration is $10 US until November when it will change to $20 US, so register today.
