Raptor field trip! - February 6, 2012

By David Nguyen

 

Love to watch raptors?

 

Join Portland Parks & Recreations' Naturalist on a bird-watching field trip to Sauvie island next Wednesday and learn why raptors, waterfowls, and eagles abound in the winter in the Willamette Valley. 

 

Folks on last year's trip spotted a variety of raptor species on the island. We'll have binoculars for you to borrow. There won't be much walking, and we recommend that you wear gloves so you can comfortably hold your binoculars.

 

This trip is part of the James Davis series of excursions based on his book, "The Northwest Nature Guide," which we'll have for sale at a 20% discount to trip participants.

 

There's also a "bring a friend" discount available to the first 3 registrants; call (503) 823-3601 to register or with questions.
