Green Ridge Lookout

Location: About 12 miles east of the Cascades crest in central Oregon, north of Black Butte, southwest Jefferson County.

Description: This 15-mile long ridge runs north-south, with a very gradual slope to the east and a very steep slope to the west, which descends roughly 1,500 ft to the Metolius River. The ridge is mostly forested, but has some recent harvest units as well as a few small meadows and rock outcroppings.

Ornithological Highlights:  Trial counts conducted by HawkWatch International in fall 1994 tallied 1451 migrating raptors of 14 species in 267 hours of observation. There are hopes of establishing a permanent fall raptor monitoring station, banding site, and educational outreach effort on Green Ridge in cooperation with the Deschutes National Forest, HawkWatch International, and other partners. This ridge is also host to a great variety of landbirds during breeding and migration seasons.

For more information on Green Ridge, please see the Technical Site Report in the National IBA database.
