Once again, I will be leading the Three Capes Tour on Friday, April 21, for the Birding and Blues Festival. This trip runs from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and covers birding sites from Pacific City to Cape Meares. We will visit a nice variety of habitats in search of an equal diversity of bird species.

Compared to the steady southbound trickle in the fall, spring shorebird migration is fast and furious. This class will familiarize you with all the common shorebirds species, teaching you to recognize each species by color, shape, and behavior. On Saturday we will visit the coast to see these birds in person. Click here to register.
