Wednesday Birders 

Until further notice, Wednesday Birding outings are  suspended. If you do go birding, comply with social distancing to limit the spread of the virus - follow public health recommendations. Frequent handwashing is #1. 

Do not share your optics with others. 

Keep 6+ feet away from others.

If you are sick, stay  home. 

Ideally, go outside daily and enjoy birds alone or just with your close friends or family.  


As of Oct. 9, 2019 start time will be 8AM. 

Meet up with others in our intrepid group for local birding. We meet at Nancy P's Bakery on Newport Avenue just east of Newport Market in Bend. From there we depart on weekly half day or full day trips to venues in our area. Meet-up times are usually 7AM in the Spring and Summer and 8AM in Fall and Winter. Trip plans are posted on COBOL each week prior to the trip. Contact Judy Meredith for more information, 

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.
