If you birded each Wednesday with us, you would have seen 257 birds in 2017. We took several trips out of central Oregon this year, to either camping or motel based destinations including, Wallowas, Malheur/Page Springs, North coast, and Lucky Peak Observatory in Idaho. Expect a few trips of similar 3 to 5 day duration in 2018. The first is to Wallowa county, which has already filled to capacity.
The schedule for Wednesday birding is listed on the ecaudubon.org website. Sometimes, due to inclement weather or a rare bird preempting the plan, we announce a change on COBOL, so watch COBOL posts for specifics. We promote carpooling to be easier on our planet but you can always meet the birders at the birding location if you prefer.
When I am not around for Wednesdays, many helpful ECAS birders pitch in with posting reminders, leading, doing the bird list, etc. Thanks to Sherrie Pierce, Diane Burgess, Tom Penpraze, Howard Horvath, Mike Golden, Steve Kornfeld and others.
