Location

From Roseburg, take I-5 north to exit 129. Turn right on Hwy 99 and go a short distance to College Rd; turn left and drive 1 mile to the college. Park and start from any point at a sidewalk. Map available at the Administration Building on weekdays. Sidewalks completely circle campus. The fields and hill north of tennis courts are good for migrants and sparrows; also take the path down to the river. Best habitat is along edges of the campus

The  loop thru the residential area on North River Dr. will pick up lots of feeder type birds
