Here are several opportunities to study shorebirds during southbound migration.
Audubon Society of Portland
July 24 Class 7-9 pm
July 25 Coastal Field Trip
This is a great intensive study of shorebirds, with an all-day field trip to the north coast. We are doing this class near the beginning of migration, so you will be prepared to enjoy the waves of migrants in the following two months.
To register, contact Portland Audubon.
Jackson Bottom Wetland Reserve
August 8, 9 am-noon
Jackson Bottom is one of the better shorebird migration sites in the Portland area. This session will include both indoor and outdoor components. The exact schedule will be determined by local conditions at the time.
To register, contact Hillsboro Parks and Recreation.
Birds and Brew Festival
Fernhill Wetlands, Forest Grove
I will be leading a tour around Fernhill Wetlands for the Birds and Brew Festival. If you haven’t seen Fernhill Wetlands in the past year, come check out the extensive habitat restoration that has occurred here. While we will not be focusing exclusively on shorebirds, this is the peak of migration so there should be plenty of opportunity for study.
Check back for schedule details.
