Escape the winter doldrums with a Westside birding adventure to Koll Creekside Marsh! .Join naturalist Elaine Murphy and the hosting Backyard Bird Shop of Beaverton for a free tour of this unique area, a wildlife refuge as well as a high tech industrial site. There is the possibility of seeing river otters. Belted Kingfishers, and abundant waterfowl. In the winter you might see a Great Blue Heron, Great Egret in addition to Green-winged Teal, Common Merganser, and Northern Shoveler. In warmer seasons there is the likelihood for seeing up to four types of swallows as they fly about catching insects: Cliff, Barn, Violet-green and Tree Swallows.

We plan to meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Backyard Bird Shop located in the Beaverton Fred Meyer shopping center and then carpool to the site. Advance reservations are required—we limit the number of participants to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable and educational experience. Some of our walks do fill up, so phone the shop (503-626-0949) to reserve your spot as soon as you can. Dress for the weather, and please, no pets!
