From the Bend Parkway (Hwy 97) in Bend, take the Reed Market Road Exit 139. Go 1.4 miles on Reed Market to a roundabout and take Century Drive out of the roundabout. Travel 11.7 miles on Century Drive and look for the signs to Virginia Meissner Snow Park. For owls, enter the road and drive just past the parking area. Look for a road off to your left. Take that road and stop periodically to call for owls. You may have to travel over two miles to find them.Directions
Habitat and Birds
High elevation forest. This is an excellent area for owls. In late May it is possible to hear Western Screech, Flammulated and Northern Saw-whet Owls. In the daytime, watch for Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Canada Jay, Clark’s Nutcracker, a variety of woodpeckers and, occasionally, Pine Grosbeak.
