Bird Alliance of Oregon Birding Day: Sauvie Island *FULL*

Join Stefan to traipse around the lesser known shorebird accesses before the winter closures. Our main focus is migrants, passerines and shorebirds, but we will also hope for Sabine’s Gull and jaegers. Meet at the parking lot just across the Sauvie Island bridge (45.629665, -122.815754). Bring lunch and rubber boots just in case.

Bring lunch and dress for the weather.

Trip limited to 8 participants.
