Audubon Birding Day: Winter Birding on Sauvie Island with Brodie Cass Talbott *FULL*
We’ll start our day on Rentenaar Road with a one- to two-mile hike enjoying songbirds, and keeping an eye out for Harris’s, Swamp, and Lincoln’s Sparrow, as well as Black Phoebe and Sandhill Crane. A stop at the Eastside Viewing Platform will give us a great opportunity to study dabbling ducks, while a short hike at Willow Bar should give decent views of diving ducks. We’ll end our day at Racoon Point, scanning for Bald Eagle, Northern Harrier, and any of the other eight possible diurnal raptors.
This trip will feature 2-3 miles of hiking, mostly along flat gravel roads and unpaved forest trails and beaches. Porta-johns will be available at several stops. The weather will likely be cold with a chance of rain, so please come prepared with adequate weather gear, as well as food and water.
