Field Trip: Birding by Ear at Mt. Tabor Nature Park with Brodie Cass Talbott

Mt. Tabor is the perfect place to work on birding by ear, with wide trails, bountiful habitat, and less urban noise than many city parks. In this three hour journey we’ll work on songs and calls of our resident birds, building a foundation before the bulk of migrants arrives in April.

*Meeting location will be emailed to you by your leader several days before the field trip.

Limited to 10 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.

$45 – $65

Let's welcome back migratory birds!

Join Brodie for a workshop on birding by ear in Portland’s premiere songbird hotspot.
