Habitat and Birds

This road follows the Lostine River and winds through farmland and into timber. Riparian vegetation is never far from the road. Species noted here in the past include Osprey, Sharp-shinned Hawk, Merlin, Barn Owl, Townsend’s Solitaire, Bohemian Waxwing and Yellow Warbler. Other forest species are expected as you move higher into the timber. American Three-toed Woodpecker and Pacific Wren can sometimes be found on the Bowman River Trail.
