      Dear Calbirders,

      The following festivals are all opportunities to show your bird support for
      such events. Many of these events have gone a long way towards changing
      business attitudes towards birdwatching. This is particularly true in the
      smaller rural communities where they are often held. A key measure of
      success among non-birders is "How many people?" We on the other hand judge a
      festival by the quality of it's birds. So, all the hot birders in the state
      can do two things; Attend a bird festival to boost their attendance, then,
      find some really cool birds to make everybody else wish they had attended

      Good birds happen, Harlequin Duck at Stockton (CVBS), Emperor Goose this
      past weekend, Sprague's Pipit Salton Sea, or Magnificent Hummingbird at
      Godwit Days two years ago.

      So please check out the web pages and spread the word.

      Yours Rob Hewitt
