The third annual Garrett County (MD) Birdfest is scheduled to take place next weekend, Friday, May 6- Sunday, May 8. This great event includes four guided birding trips to four area birding spots in the county. The best part for photographers in my opinion is an aviary encounter scheduled for Saturday, May 7 at the Discovery Center in Deep Creek Lake State Park. Please see more photos and text below. Birding at Deep Creek Lake is a great source of admiration for nature lovers visiting the area in Western Maryland.
I shot these photos during last year’s Birding Festival. The aviary encounter provided a great opportunity to get a close up look at the birds outside of their normal living spaces.
All of the birds at the Discovery Center are rescued birds. Deep Creek Lake is a fantastic destination which is an easy drive to places like Pittsburgh,Baltimore, Northern Virginia and the D.C. Area. It is well known for great skiing water sports, golf and leaf viewing but what many do not realize is fantastic place to see birds.
