Kachamak Bay Shorebird Festival

Homer’s birders are a loosely organized but tightly knit flock. The main charm of birders call themselves the Kachemak Bay Birders. The K-Bay Birders (which formed in 2008) are an informal covey of, as their Chair Carol Harding describes them, “a complete  ad-hoc volunteer organization,” whose  primary organizing feature is the email list they use to communicate about upcoming monthly meetings and field trips and other events.
