Field Trip: Timothy Lake Area

Let’s look for the surprising variety of species found around the deep waters of Timothy Lake, from three species of loons to migrating passerines.

The deep water of Timothy lake can attract a surprising variety of species. Fall migration is a great time to look for Common, Pacific and Red-throated Loons, Western, Clark’s, Red-necked, Eared and Horned Grebes, and over the years even Common Tern and Sabine’s Gulls have been seen. We’ll visit a few nearby locations to look for migrating passerines as well, including northern migrants, such as Ruby-crowned Kinglet and Golden-crowned Sparrow.

Bring lunch and dress for the weather. You will provide your own transportation. Details on where to meet to come in a follow-up email.

Trip limited to 10 participants.

This outdoor program will require masks and follow all physical distancing and safety protocols dictated by the Oregon Health Administration. Scroll down for details.
