Field Trip: Beginning Birding at Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge with Laura Whittemore *FULL*

New to birding? Come spend time in the field with an experienced birder ready to help you identify birds by sight, sound, and behavior and improve your skills. Get to know each site’s birdlife in a relaxed educational setting.

The biologically rich wetlands, fields, and forest of this wildlife refuge host numerous resident and migrant birds. Get to know different species of songbird, swallow, woodpecker, waterfowl, raptor, and whatever else flies our way. A morning at this refuge learning about birds is a great way to start the day!

We’ll walk a loop trail taking us through open floodplains and fields, coniferous forest, and oak woodland in a quest to find and identify resident and migrant birds by sight, sound, behavior, and habitat.

The trail is wide and flat with no elevation gain save for walking a brief gentle slope at the beginning and end of the trail.

 

Learn to ID birds in the field!

This field trip is intended for beginners. Join Laura Whittemore to learn about how to identify birds by sight and sound at Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge.
