Delintment Lake with Portland Audubon
June 8 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
Meet at Spark Collaborative Studio at 8:30 (parking available on Adams, east of Broadway). We will caravan to Delintment Lake, arriving around 9:30. Starting at the dam, we’ll make our way around Delintment, looking for Williamson’s Sapsuckers, waterfowl, and other passerines. After the almost 2-mile hike around the lake, we’ll have the option to meander up the Delintment Creek Trail. This trail travels through a burn scar from a 2007 fire and going can be rough due to downed snags. We’ll travel about 1-mile up the trail, looking for shrub-loving forest birds, before heading back toward the dam.
