Bird Week 2018

A Celebration of the Birds and People of Seattle | April 23 - 28 2018

Bird Week 2018 has ended, but you can still enjoy the stories, music, BirdNote Live!, and more. 

Seattle's First-ever Bird Week

Doughnuts, tap dancing, sketching, stories and plenty of birds! Seattle's celebration of Birds! 

Relive BirdNote Live!

Listen in to BirdNote’s Michael Stein and Mary McCann with special guests Barbara Earl Thomas and Dr. J. Drew Lanham for BirdNote Live!, an evening of conversation by, for and about birds. This event took place April 26th at First Baptist Church in Seattle. A full house enjoyed a poignant and humorous conversation, with a special guest; a middle school student named Doria.

Share Your Bird Story. Listen To Some Others.

We are collecting stories from people whose encounters with birds have brought them joy, made them angry, required them to clean their shirt, or made them think. The stories will be kept in the StoryCorps archive to enjoy for years to come. Visit the Seward Park Audubon Center to record your story, or create a StoryCorps account to record online.  Record your story, or hear existing stories here. 

Hear Some Bird Songs...By the Beatles, Alice in Chains, Prince and More

We've created a Bird Week playlist on Spotify. Listen in on some popular, and not so popular, songs that bring us a little closer to our feathered friends.

BIRD WEEK is a partnership between the Seward Park Audubon Center and BirdNote, Seattle Parks and Recreation, Seattle Public Library, Seattle Audubon and many more! This week would not be possible without the support of our generous community sponsors.  Thank you!
