Bird Alliance of Oregon Birding Day: Sauvie Island – Wapato & Rentenaar Road with Stefan Schlick *FULL*

Winter is by far the birdiest season at Sauvie Island, with cranes and geese wheeling overhead almost non-stop. We will be looking for White-throated and Swamp Sparrow and unusual waterfowl such as Redhead and Canvasback.

Bring lunch and dress for the weather. You will drive yourself for the day. Meet at 8:00 am at the Rentenaar Road turnoff (45.757353, -122.770766). Stefan will reach out with further details before the trip. 

Trip limited to 10 participants. 

This outdoor program will follow all physical distancing and safety protocols dictated by the Oregon Health Administration. Masks required. Please feel free to bring your own spotting scope if you have one. Scroll down for details.

$65 – $85
