I’m going to try to do better about posting the results of the Saturday bird walk at Sunriver Nature Center. Today’s walk had 10 participants including one very young birder. The walk lasted about 3 hours.
Notable sighting were Western Kingbird and Golden-crowned Kinglet. We also observed Prairie Falcon flying and being harassed by a dozen Ravens. Best sighting was a Great Gray Owl at an undisclosed location. For many new birders and this more seasoned one it is always a great find. RW Blackbirds and Tree Swallows are too abundant to count. There are still a good number of White-crowned and a few Golden-crowned Sparrows in the area.
As a side note the four Trumpter Cygnets are being removed next week to the new home down at Summer Lake WMA.
Contact Sunriver Nature Center to signup for the bird walks. They are at 9:00 most Saturdays.
67 records of 44 species seen or heard at 4 locations.
