During this casual walk, at the southern end of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, we’ll travel north along the Blitzen River. We’ll walk and talk about birds, conservation, and Malheur history. Late summer is a great time for early fall migrants, for flocking Bobolink (in non-breeding plumage), and occassionally beaver.
