Visitors flocked to Puget Sound Bird Fest in Edmonds Saturday, enjoying the exhibits, classes and lectures throughout the day. Children’s activities were set up in the Library Plaza Room, including an opportunity to dissect owl pellets and discover undigested treasures from past meals, such as skulls, bones and teeth.
Bird Fest continues through Sunday. You can see the complete schedule here.
