Field Class: Waterbirds of Tillamook with Cameron Cox and Erin Law *FULL*

We will meet in Tillamook at 9:00 a.m. Further details will be provided by the instructor as we get closer to the trip. Carpooling is encouraged, and we will caravan to different locations.

We will be enjoying the bounty of waterbirds found in coastal Tillamook County during the winter while also learning a bit about the identification and habits of some of the Oregon Coast’s many different waterbirds.

Curious to learn more about Cackling and Canada Geese? How about American and Eurasian Wigeon and their hybrids? Female ducks? Scoters in flight? Winter plumage loons? Western and Clark’s Grebes? We will revel in waterbirds of all types as we encounter them. We will emphasize comparing similar species directly as the opportunities arise to reinforce learning while also enjoying great views of many species like Harlequin Ducks, goldeneye, and Brant

We will likely partake in some local seafood to ensure our minds are properly fueled to take in all the sights and sounds of winter on the Oregon Coast. We will stop at a restaurant for lunch (not included in fee), I’ve got a couple in mind, but if people want to bring their own food, we can accommodate that as well. If the weather is difficult, we will try to view birds from covered locations and will likely take a more extended lunch that may include a presentation on waterfowl identification.

Take a deep dive into Oregon's coastal waterbirds!
