What we’ll do

Portland has a handful of wonderful birding hotspots right in the heart of the city. We will meet at one of these, get quiet, and explore the trails and see what we can see.

I will walk you through some basics on how to identify birds in the field…

What else you should know

Birding is rain or shine! Please be sure to check the weather and dress accordingly. Remember that we will not always be moving quickly; on cool days dress a *little* warmer than you might normally.

What I’ll provide

Snacks
Nuts and dried fruit If you have any dietary restrictions please let me know beforehand!
Equipment
Poncho (I will have one just for you if it happens to be raining that day.)

What to bring

Water
Comfortable, supportive footwear

Where you'll be

Oaks Bottom Wildlife refuge is a place I have been going for years, in all seasons. I know where certain birds have nested year after year, I know where certain birds often can be found, and just have a general sense of the place that comes from careful, loving observation.
