Godwit Days, April 16-22, cover artist Sara Starr

Godwit Days is a birding festival held on the North Coast. It consists of  a huge number of field trips, seminars and a lovely "Wildlife and Landscape" arts exhibit, curated by well known nature artist Linda Parkinson. The festival is headquartered at the Arcata Community center with good food and plenty of parking. This year's poster is by watercolorist Sara Starr, who for many years lived right next to the Arcata Marsh and knows the birds intimately. She is a fine watercolorist who layers transparent glazes for vibrant color and luminosity.
