Birding Festivals in February

How did we ever make it through the cold, snowy, and dark wintery days of February before the advent of birding festivals? This retrospective review of 25 birding festivals that were held in the month of February in 2007 is mainly of historical interest at this juncture—they’ve all come and gone—but most of these are annual events, so mark your calendars for next year!
