Field Trips

The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area will be our base for field trips to visit the wonderfully diverse habitats in some of the most under-birded areas in the state. This conference’s trips may produce some surprises, in addition to improving the eBird database for the region. Our base location will allow us to advantageously bird both the western- and eastern-Washington climate regions, which includes a unique selection of habitats, including riparian, wetlands, lakes, shrub-steppe, mixed hardwood forest, Ponderosa Pine, Garry Oak, aspen, basalt cliffs and talus slopes, mixed conifer forest, a variety of wet forests, grasslands, and agricultural areas.  Choosing trips that cover different habitats will likely give you an expansive conference bird list.

The Gorge itself is a wonder of geologic and cultural history, with plenty of informational and scenic viewing areas. The spring wildflower display and cascading waterfalls are quite magnificent and are an extremely popular local and tourist attraction.

Remember to bring your National Parks/Forest Pass, Discover Pass, and FRS radios to use during field trips.  For your safety, become familiar with possible dangers in the area and arrive prepared.  Intense sun, poison oak, rattlesnakes, ticks, mosquitoes, and steep/uneven terrain area are natural hazards in some areas.  Select trips that are appropriate for your fitness level, both for your safety and in consideration of your trip co-participants.The 2018 WOS Hood River Conference will offer a total of 49 day trips and three owling trips. We will offer three on-the-way to Hood River trips on Thursday and four half day returning trips are scheduled for Monday. Thirteen day trips are scheduled for Friday, 16 day trips for Saturday and 13 day trips for Sunday. Saturday’s Birds and Brews half-day trip will combine birding gorge destinations with touring and tasting local breweries. Sunday’s Lyle, Bingen, Look & Rowland Lake half day trip with Thomas Bancroft will be an eBird field training.

Two indicators are listed after each trip leader’s name  whether the trip is eBird Enabled and if playback will be used. The trips marked as eBird Enabled will have an E following the trip leader(s) name. Ebird enabled trips indicate that the leader will record species at each location visited and will share the lists with those interested. Keep in mind that those trips that are not e-Bird enabled may have a participant who will be e-birding each location.  WOS has received comments regarding playback. Therefore, leaders were asked to indicate: “no playback used,”  “playback used” or the more common “playback may be used.” This final option means that the leader may use playback if the situation is deemed appropriate for a target species.

Full-day trips will depart at 5:30am and return by 4pm. Half-day trips will depart at 6am and return by noon.  Owling trips leave the parking area at 8:30pm.  Be sure to check your registration materials for meeting location and times.  All times listed for trips are departure times, so please arrive at least 10-15 minutes early to check in with your trip leader and for the carpooling arrangements.  Trip leaders will have signs with the trip name in the designated meeting area.

It is the responsibility of the participants to reimburse their driver. Remind the driver to set the odometer before departure. WOS recommends that drivers be reimbursed by a rate of 0.25 per mile divided by the number of passengers in the car (not including the driver). For example if a trip is 100 miles in length and three passengers are in the car, each person would contribute $8.33 for mileage reimbursement to the driver.

 

 



On the Way Trips

On the way trips are designed to optimize your birding experience by taking advantage of routes that can be birded while taking you in the general direction of your destination (to Hood River on Thursday and on the way home on Monday).
