Meet at the Hall/Nimbus Park & Ride, Southwest Cascade Avenue, Beaverton, OR. We will look for grebes, loons, alcids, gulls, and waterfowl from various vantage points in Yaquina Bay. Long-tailed Ducks are usually wintering in the area and the trail at the Hatfield Marine Science Center often has something unusual to offer.

We will start the day at E.E Wilson Wildlife Area looking for sparrows. After about 1.5 hours there, we will head over to Finley National Wildlife Refuge where we will traverse a variety of habitats including coniferous forest. We will end the day at the prairie overlook area hoping for a Short-eared Owl to take flight.

We’ll spend the day birding the Finley National Wildlife Refuge and other location as time allows.
