Audubon Birding Day: World Migratory Bird Day! Clackamas County Hotspots with Dan van den Broek *1 spot left*

From Lazuli Bunting to Acorn Woodpecker to a myriad of spring migrants, this will be a fun trip for us all to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day, discovering the birding patches near the communities of Canby and Molalla.

We’ll plan to visit Molalla River State Park, and Anderson Road in Canby, Ivor Davies and East Clark Park in Molalla. Small wetland areas can hold ducks, herons, egrets, and possibly shorebirds, while numerous bird species will be passing through. We hope for Lazuli Bunting, Bullock’s Oriole, and an assortment of warblers and flycatchers. Patches of oak woodland are home to Acorn Woodpecker and the Pacific (Slender-billed) White-breasted Nuthatch.

Please dress for the weather. You will drive yourself for the day. Dan will reach out with further details before the trip. 

Trip limited to 8 participants.

This outdoor program will follow all physical distancing and safety protocols dictated by the Oregon Health Administration. Masks required. Please feel free to bring your own spotting scope if you have one. Scroll down for details.
