Subject: [Umpqua Birds] Turkey Vultures
Hello All,

I saw two Turkey Vultures soaring over our area (seven mile west of
Elkton) today.  They were quite high over head, but I saw no white on
the under wings or tail.

Cheers,

John M.

Yes. I drove down Sparrow Park Lane and then drove south along the beach. The high tide was coming in so I needed to be expedient and just set up a short Seawatch from the north jetty.

Nice! I have not seen a male Harlequin in the county for a long time; just a couple females. Was it on the north side of the north jetty? Did you drive out there? I'm still too chicken to do that with my pickup. Too heavy I think.

Subject: [Umpqua Birds] Field Trip: River Forks Park, February 29
*This is the first of a series of Umpqua Basin Naturalist Field Trips,
supported by a generous donation from Anna Slemmer, long-time member and
supporter of Umpqua Valley Audubon.*

Saturday, February 29, 09:00-12:00. *Tracks and Sign, Bird Sounds, and
Plant Buds and Blooms*. It is officially still winter, but a lot is
happening in the wild. At River Forks Park, we will look for animal tracks
and sign along the river, listen for and learn some bird sounds, and notice
and learn to identify some early blooming flowers and/or leafing trees and
shrubs. There will be some wet sandy areas, uneven ground and a couple
river banks to navigate, so wear appropriate clothing and footgear. Bring
any water and snacks that you might want, and binoculars and camera if you
like. Meet 09:00 at River Forks Park at the southwestern parking lot (gps
coords: 43.269129, -123.443617). I expect to be done by noon. You will need
a county park pass to park. Questions? Need a ride? Call or txt Matt Hunter
541-670-1984.

We had a hot spot of Lewis woodpeckers today. I think at least 20. I have one photo with 8 in it!

About 1.5 miles this side of Mildred Knaipe Co Park. We were parked right at the bridge across a small creek ….. fairly large farm pond just to the south.

Then you quality for the Great Backyard Bird Count! Actually, you don't
even need a back yard, a front yard will do. Or even no yard at all. Haha!
Hope you can count some birds this weekend and report:
