What you'll do

We'll meet early, because that's when the birds are most active. Also, the absence of traffic allows us to hear the different birds. We'll do a loop walk around Delta Ponds and spot as many migrating birds as possible. Option to extend our viewing on the North Bank Trail (multiuse). Binoculars, 8 X 32, will be provided or bring your own. Photographers should bring their own equipment. Host will assist in identification of species and hiding places! We'll walk about 2 miles on a crushed rock surface.

Francine

I'm a self taught birder, with good knowledge of local species. I love the outdoors and am a native to Eugene. I love to share the sense of discovery with those who are beginning to cultivate an interest in birding.

What's included

Equipment
Binoculars 8 X 32 magnification. Variety of "bird books".

Where you'll be

Delta Ponds will be primary. This is an easy trail with a crushed rock surface. Bridges in the Pond loop trail can be slippery, so shoe selection is important. Depending on what we see at the Pond, we can cross the bike bridge to the North Bank of the Willamette Bike Trail, also a good birding stop during migration. We'll need to warm up at the end of our tour, so we'll retire to the coffeehouse for a warm drink and to compare notes

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 3 guests ages 14 and up can attend. No dogs on this trip - we want to sneak up on some birds that are close to shore.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

The migration season begins way earlier than WE are ready to be standing around outdoors! While the trees are bare you can have a great time spotting birds, even if you have never tried before. Cautions about layering, shoes and rain gear are to enhance your morning experience.
