Bird Alliance of Oregon Birding Day: Grays Harbor *FULL*

We will bird wherever the birding is hot, either on the north side of the bay (Ocean Shores area) or the south side (Westport area). Our destinations will be dictated by the latest sightings. Birds we may look for include late shorebirds and passerines. The timing is also good for Lapland Longspur which stay only for a weeks in October.

Bring lunch and dress for the weather.

You will drive yourself for the day. Meet at the east end of Aberdeen (at the south side of McDonald’s at 46.976775, -123.804267).

Trip limited to 8 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.
