100 Birds of Summer: Birds, Bikes, and Brews
Join Teresa Wicks, Portland Audubon’s Eastern Oregon Field Coordinator for 100 Birds of Summer, a series of family and beginning birder-friendly programs connecting people to birds and nature. Over the course of the summer, we’ll aim to see 100 bird species, from forests to wetlands, and places in-between. But don’t be fooled, this series isn’t only for serious listers, we’re aiming to create community while exploring the birds and ecosystems that Harney County has to offer. Binoculars will be available.
Birds, Bikes, and Brews
For this “100 Birds of Summer” outing, we’ll meet at Spark Collaborative Studio at 8:00. From there, we’ll bike up Broadway to Foley Rd and travel in a loop around the Silvies River. We will stop at several points along the way to scan riparian vegetation and agricultural fields for birds. We’ll also stop to peek at some feeders on Foley Rd and at the 5-mile Dam. Our outing will wrap up with coffees at Bella Java in Burns.
Length: 11 miles
Accessibility: This route travels along paved roads with narrow shoulders and some sharp turns. We will ride in single-file around these turns.
