Audubon Birding Day: Columbia County Bottomlands with Brodie Cass Talbott *FULL*

Columbia County still possesses some of the marshy bottomlands that have been developed in neighboring Multnomah County, providing fun winter birding opportunities.

Join Brodie as we explore the Crown Zellerbach Trail, enjoying the many species that winter in this area, including Sandhill Cranes, abundant waterfowl, raptors, and sparrows. We’ll continue further downriver to St. Helens, where we’ll visit a patchwork of habitats along the Columbia River, looking for gulls, loons, Black Phoebe, and White-breasted Nuthatch.

Meeting location will be emailed to you by your leader several days before the field trip.

Trip limited to 10 participants.

Explore the Columbia County Bottomlands!

With its proximity to the river, Columbia County is famous for waterfowl and raptors. We’ll look for swans, unusual geese, interesting sparrows, and whatever else pops up.
