Bird Walks
Our bird walks are led by Steve Barron. We meet before 9am to arrange car-pooling and drive to our destinations. Once there, we usually walk for 1-1/2 to 2 hours, and get back to Campbell Center around 11:30. Some destinations are further away, such as Finley Refuge and Elijah Bristow Park, so our return might be Noon or even as late as 1:00pm. Usually at least some people want to get back earlier so they arrange to ride together in one car. Trips with later return times are always announced as such ahead of time.

Jan 25, 2018: Possible Diamond Hill area trip
Led by Steve Barron; 9am - 11:30
This trip is being considered and discussed as a possibility, partly because there are Short-eared Owls at this location in larger numbers this Winter. Parking is almost non-existent and the owls are rarely seen before late afternoon, so we'll see. Perhaps we'll do a raptor run from the town of Coburg up to Hwy 228, then east of I-5 and south through the sheep farms in that area and include Diamond Hill near the end.

THE LATEST BIRDS REPORTED to eBIRD in the Southern Willamette Valley and the Central Coast

There is now a STATEWIDE RARITIES widget,
as well as a REGIONAL RARITIES widget (covering 40 miles around Eugene).
There are also widgets covering:

  1. A circle surrounding the Finley Wildlife Refuge area
  2. A circle covering the Southern Willamette Valley
  3. NEW ADDITIONS are four widgets covering Florence, Yachats, Waldport and Newport!

Most eBird data provides only confirmed sightings, but a rare bird might not stick around as long as it takes for a report to be confirmed by local eBird reviewers. The two RARITIES widgets near the top of the page give the quickest public access to reports of such sightings.

CLICK HERE for the webpage for RARE and RECENT BIRD sightings.
