I will be leading the 9:30 bird walk for the annual Birds and Brew Festival at Fernhill Wetlands on September 30.


Audubon Society of Portland
October 26, 7-9 pm Class
October 28, 8 am – 5 pm Field Trip

Some birders feel intimidated trying to identify gulls. While a few individuals may be baffling, most birds are pretty easy to ID if you know what to look for. This class will help you recognize all the regularly occurring gulls in Oregon. The field trip (transportation provided) will search for gulls along the northern Oregon Coast. Last year’s field trip found a record 10 species of gulls. We will try to meet or beat that number this year.
