Located 12 miles south of Nyssa, Adrian borders the Snake River. Though most access is barred by private land, there are a few areas that get close to the river and could harbor migrants and local nesters. Take Main Street east to 5th Street and then north to Otis Road for the best viewing. On the south end of town, there is a large grove of trees that can be viewed by pulling over and listening from the road. The trees here are on private property so, as always, please respect property rights.


Habitat and Birds

Follow the common sense rules for birding in a community setting. Walk or drive the streets, checking for migrants in spring and fall and residents in summer and winter. Look for rafts of loafing ducks along the river in all seasons except summer.
