Vancouver Audubon Birding Trip
Leader: Eric Bjorkman 360-213-6489
Where: Meet at the Port of Camas-Washougal
We'll meet at the Port of Camas and head east on SR 14 at 8am, stopping first at Franz Lake for waterfowl. We'll visit a fish hatchery on the Little White Salmon River in search of American Dipper and possibly Harlequin Duck. Drano lake is nearby and we'll scan it while keeping eyes out for Bald Eagles and Osprey.
As we move east, the habitat changes from the wetter west side of the Cascade Range to the drier east side where pine and oak are much more abundant. the birds change here along with the habitat and we'll be looking for species like Western Bluebird and Lewis's Woodpecker. Other likely stops will be at Catherine Creel and the Lyle-Balch Cemetery where, along with good birding possibilities, we can usually find Western Pond Turtles in a nearby lake, a species not found west of the Cascades.
Our target return time will be 3:00 pm depending on weather conditions and the cooperation of the birds.
Bring snacks and lunch as we'll eat in the field.
