DIAMOND LAKE BOAT TRIP: SATURDAY OCTOBER 12

Hi Folks,
Come join a small group for a fun all-day cruise around Diamond Lake,
stopping at concentrations of waterfowl as well as several terrestrial
locations for restroom stops and land and marsh birding. This date was
chosen for the typical influx of large numbers of waterfowl before the lake
freezes over.

Here are some photos and bird lists from two previous trips:

In addition to the water birds, Diamond Lake has species such as Mountain
Chickadee and sometimes Clark's Nutcracker that we don't often see at lower
elevations. Cost will be $30 to $60/person for the boat trip (depending on
how many people sign up and which boat we get). Bring lunch, water, and
appropriate clothing. We will depart Diamond Lake Marina at 0800 Saturday
morning on one of their "patio boats," and arrive back there between 3 and
4 pm, depending on weather, birds, and the decisions of participants. Once
we have a list of participants, we will consider carpooling. Limited Space,
preregistration required: call, text, or email Matt Hunter at 541-670-1984,
<matthewghunter...>, with your name, phone number, email, and any
questions. Note: weather can plan an important role on whether this trip
goes or not, so be sure to let me know the best way to communicate with you.

Some options associated with this trip: Diamond Lake Lodge has rentable
rooms and cabins if you want to stay the night before or after. The lodge
also has food, which I usually like to enjoy after a day on the water.

Matt
