    The festival started the winter of 1997 through the efforts of Bar Harbor ornithologist and business owner, Michael Good, the festivals founder. In 2008, we changed the name from “Warblers and Wildflowers Festival” to “Acadia Birding Festival”. 2008 was the first public appearance of Pete Dunne from Cape May Bird Observatory.
