Audubon Birding Day: Sherrard Point at Larch Mountain
Join Ross on a summer visit to the site of an ancient shield volcano and the highest point in the Boring Lava Fields, at around 4.100 feet. These old-growth forests of Western Hemlock, Noble Fir, and Douglas-fir are rich in birdlife with opportunities to see/hear westside Cascade summer residents such as Sooty Grouse, Northern Pygmy-Owl, Hammond’s Flycatcher, Olive-sided Flycatcher, Canada Jay, Red Crossbill, and Hermit Warbler.
Please remember to bring binoculars and appropriate layered clothing and boots for summer weather at elevation with occasional wet grass or mud. Also, drinks and snacks/lunch for the duration of the trip!
Limited to 12 participants.
We will meet at the Larch Mountain Parking Lot. Unfortunately, no public transportation is available. Ross will reach out with further details before the trip. ***Recreation Pass Required***
Masks are optional on this outdoor program.
