Klickitat County Fall Migration Count Field Trip - Vancouver Audubon Society
Leaders: Randy Hill and others; call or text for additional details and to register: 360-975-2573
Target species are all birds found within an assigned route in Klickitat County, with a variety of resident and migratory species associated with higher elevation, drier grass and shrub, rocky, lake/riverine, agricultural, neighborhood and town, and/or mixed forests of eastern Washington. This is a continuing data collection event with team leaders and variable participation each year; for this reason the sign-up deadline is September 9th to assign participants to teams.
Itinerary: Meeting point and start time to be determined. An early start (likely by 05:30) required for travel east to reach whatever route is assigned; expect a full day
Carpooling as much as possible following COVID protocols; fully vaccinated only. We will be mostly birding along roads with stop-and-go at pullouts, some short walks, and on some routes using trails to cover as much habitat as possible.
Spotting scope suggested although not required, but a Discover Pass is suggested as there are several DNR and WDFW areas where they are required.
