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

We will spend a day working Rentenaar Road for sparrows and waterfowl and then walking the Wapato Access Greenway for woodland and waterbirds. Tundra and Trumpeter Swan, Sandhill Cranes, and Snow Geese should all be on the day’s list. You can’t go wrong with this trip! 

Meet at 8 a.m. at the parking lot at the Sauvie side of the bridge at 45.6296, -122.8157. The day ends at around 4 p.m. 

Participants will drive themselves and will need a Sauvie Island ODFW Parking Pass.

Make sure to bring lunch and come prepared for the weather.
