Audubon Birding Day: Willamette Valley Refuges – Ankeny
Join Brodie Cass Talbott for a trip to Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge, the second in a series of Audubon Birding Days exploring the Willamette Valley Refuge System, a haven for wintering waterfowl, and a sanctuary for imperiled oak savanna habitat.
We will spend the day looking for waterfowl and raptors at one of the top birding hotspots in the Willamette Valley. Targets include White-tailed Kite, Merlin, and Tundra Swan.
Bring lunch and dress for the weather!
We will meet at the Tualatin Park & Ride North off Lower Boones Ferry Rd. To get there from Portland, take the Lower Boones Ferry Rd exit off I-5, go west and then take a right (north) on SW 72nd Ave circling around the Village Inn. To access the parking lot, take a right in another 250 ft. The parking lot is between I-5 and the Village Inn. We will meet at the north end of the parking lot. You can also paste the GPS coordinates into your browser: 45.396777, -122.748438. Note that this lot is on the north side of Lower Boones Ferry Rd.
