Wednesday Birders: June 7th

June 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Wednesday Birders is a group of birders, birding, but not a “field trip” with a named leader. Everyone helps everyone else, shares, learns, and enjoys birding together. Usually, some advanced birders are there and are so helpful. All are welcome. We carpool when possible.
Meet at 8 a.m. at the usual carpool location near the birding spot unless change noted in specific event. All the locations mentioned are listed on our website. Select tab for Birding Locations, choose the county and you get a list of favorite birding places. It includes directions to the spots and what birds you might hope to find. Important Note – Please remember to read COBOL on Tues mornings for last-minute changes to the plan in case of adverse weather, road conditions or detours, bird news or better birding opportunities.

  • June 7:  Bobolinks! Because they are an hour east of Prineville and weather will be hot, we need an early start. It will be worth it! Also Eastern Kingbirds, shorebirds and raptors etc can be in the area and seen on the return trip. Chuck Gates will lead you to the very special places in his Crook County. Bring lunch, water and scopes for a day that could go into mid afternoon if temps allow.

    Carpooling –

    Chuck will meet the group in Prineville at 7 a.m. near Ray’s Food Place, 1535 NE 3rd St, at the far south side of the parking lot. This is at Ochoco Plaza.

    From Bend, leave at 6:15 from the NE corner of the parking lot by Barnes and Noble, just off 27th street. Go to Powell Butte to meet the group.

    Powell Butte, leave at 6:45 from the gravel area of the parking lot on the east side of the Powell Butte Country Store. Leave space for big trucks to drive along the far east side.

Under usual circumstances, transportation is via carpool depending on who can drive and individual schedules. Dress for the weather; be prepared with food, sunscreen, etc; and bring a pair of binoculars; spotting scopes are helpful on many trips.
