Pacific Northwest Trip: Rogue Valley – Southern Oregon Birding with Brodie Cass Talbott *1 spot left*

California birds, in Oregon! On this three-day ramble through the beautiful Rogue Valley, we will search for some of Oregon’s hardest to find species, such as Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Oak Titmouse, and California Towhee. We’ll explore a variety of habitats, from grasslands that may hold Grasshopper Sparrow, to mountain forests and prairies, where Great Gray Owl breed (but require luck to see), and the famous Oak forests of Southern Oregon that teem with Acorn Woodpecker and Ash-throated Flycatcher. Along the way we’ll hope for chance encounters with Northern Mockingbird, Black Phoebe, and other local favorites.

*This is a self-guided tour. Lodging (book ahead of time), meals, transportation, and park entrance fees are your responsibility. Brodie will send out details about where the group will meet-up before the trip, and then guide you through birding the Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon. We will be based out of Ashland. For a three-star hotel recommendation, we recommend Ashland Springs Hotel, but there are a number of options in the area.
