Look for American Dippers as you wind along the South Fork Coquille River. At the Buck Creek campground, look for Ruffed Grouse and Barred Owl.  At the western edge of Eden Valley, look for species like Calliope Hummingbird and Willow Flycatcher in the open meadows, especially here (42.805315, -123.900985). Between Eden Valley and Mt Bolivar, look and listen for typical Coast Range species like Hammond’s and Olive-sided Flycatchers, MacGillivray’s Warbler, Sooty Grouse and Northern Pygmy-Owl. The Mt Bolivar trailhead and general area is good for species like Nashville Warbler, Townsend’s Solitaire and Dusky Flycatcher.
