Habitat and Birds
This is a small town at the edge of the Wallowa Whitman National Forest. Though a Prothonotary Warbler was found here in 2001, the more standard fare will likely be birds that wander down from the forest. Winter specialties here include Bohemian Waxwing, Common Redpoll, and Pine Siskin is possible. Stop in at the USFS campground just south of town and check for birds like House Wren, Gray Catbird, Say’s Phoebe and others. Drive due east of the campground and check the hay fields for Bobolinks.
