Come Join Us for Our Next Bird Walk(s)

 

 

 

First Wednesday of every month Bird Walk at Agate Lake:

next walk will be: Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Murray Orr leads a bird walk and count the first Wednesday of every month at Agate Lake in Eagle Point, located off Hwy 140 and E. Antelope Rd. This is an ongoing citizen science project, the numbers of different species observed by walk participants are entered in the Cornell Ornithological Laboratory's eBird database. The walk begins at 8:30am (so get there a little earlier), and meets across the lake from the boat dock on Dry Creek road on the east side of the lake

 

Local Monthly Bird Walks with Nate Trimble,

Rogue Valley Audubon Society

next walk will be: TBD

Nate will lead this walk to the Imperatrice property.  It is located on the east side of I-5 at the end of East Ashland lane near the Ashland Greenhouses.  The property offers wide open spaces perfect for raptor viewing with the opportunity to see Golden Eagles, Rough-legged Hawks, Prairie Falcons, Ferruginous hawks, and many other raptor species.  For those willing to hike a little further, the margin of the property also offers oak woodland habitat with the possibility of Black-billed Magpies and Lewis's Woodpeckers.  Accessing and exploring the property will involve some uphill hiking, possible muddy conditions, and exposed and windy terrain, so come prepared to exercise and get dirty.  For more info email Nate at nateltrimble@hotmail.com
