June 16–21, 2017
Join Portland Audubon on this trip to the Okanogan of north central Washington. We’ll be looking for summer specialties that are difficult to see in Oregon. Did you know that Clay-colored Sparrow, American Redstart, and Least Flycatcher are relatively easy to find as breeders just to the north of us? We’ll also look for more difficult to find boreal species such as Spruce Grouse, Boreal Chickadee, Pine Grosbeak, and American Three-toed Woodpecker, and hope that luck is with us. Our five-night trip, led by Okanogan expert Stefan Schlick, will be based in Omak, in the Okanogan Valley. On day one, we’ll stop en route in Brooks Memorial Park and Toppenish NWR and spend the night in Ellensburg, where we’ll look for Common Poorwills in the nearby hills. We’ll continue to Omak to explore the Okanogan Highlands, Sinlahekin Valley, and the high-elevation country of the Okanogan Cascades. Expect to find close to 150 species and enjoy the amazing scenery at this unique destination. Enjoy full days out in nature and be rewarded at the end of the day by an incomparable dinner at the Breadline Cafe in Omak.
