The Bird Days of Summer: Explore Delintment Lake (Harney County)

Meet at Sinclair gas station at the intersection of Hwy 20 and the Burns-Hines Logging Road at 8:30.

We will carpool or caravan to Delintment Lake, arriving around 9:30. Starting at the dam, we’ll make our way around Delintment, looking for Williamson’s Sapsuckers, waterfowl, and other passerines. After the almost 2-mile hike around the lake, we’ll have the option to meander up the Delintment Creek Trail.

This trail travels through a burn scar from a 2007 fire and going can be rough due to downed snags. We’ll travel about 1-mile up the trail, looking for shrub-loving forest birds, before heading back toward the dam.


Distance: Four miles total with approximately 2-miles around Delintment Lake, approximately 2-miles on the Delintment Creek Trail.
Elevation change: less than 100ft
Trail tread and width: Undeveloped/unmaintained footpath with uneven surface and some climbing over downs snags/logs required
Pacing: We will move at a slow pace with frequent stops to look for birds, plants, insects, and other bits of nature.
Amenities: ADA parking and bathroom available, water available at trailhead
Rest Stops: There are no benches along the route we will be traveling.


Join Bird Alliance of Oregon’s Education and Conservation Teams for The Bird Days of Summer, a series of free, super beginner-friendly programs for anyone curious about birds in nature. We’re combining community-building, exploration, and fun to create safe spaces for people to get to know each other as well as the birds. Binoculars can be provided upon request, and we’ll begin each program with a short “how-to” to help you get started.
