Audubon Birding Day: Upstream on the Columbia River with Brodie Cass Talbott *2 spots left*
This is a self-driving trip and will start at Deschutes River Park and end in The Dalles.
Less than two hours from Portland, the Columbia River on the lee side of the Cascades presents remarkably different landscapes. On this full-day, self-driving trip, we’ll explore the rivers around The Dalles, visiting a variety of habitats as we make our west to our ending point in The Dalles. Scanning the river, we may find Common or Pacific Loons, Surf Scoter, or Red-necked Grebe, and at Lone Pine, we’ll have an opportunity to work on our gull ID and look for uncommon species.
Make sure to bring lunch and come prepared for the weather.
