Field Trips

A large selection of trips is being offered: a total of fifty daytime trips to seventeen different locations and seven night trips to four locations. Members have requested an expanded half-day trip selection, so there are at least two half-day trips to six half-day locations. Members have also requested that half-day trips start later, so the half-day trips will leave 30 minutes (6:00 AM) later than full-day trips (5:30 AM) to give some attendees the ability to get some extra rest. Special field trip opportunities include a Monday Chase trip (tradition started with the Omak Conference in 2013), and a full day Twitch and Taste (Birds and Wine) trip on Friday (which leaves at 6:00 AM).

In order to optimize the birding experience for participants, carpooling will be used for all field trips. As with previous conferences, field trips are limited to 12 individuals in three autos for daylight trips and six in two autos for owling adventures—so register early! Also, please consider carpooling from your home to the conference. Target species listed for each trip are representative species or species that are unusual enough to warrant broad interest. For more information on specific locations mentioned in the field trip descriptions, please refer to pages 498 to 521 in the second edition of A Birder’s Guide to Washington. Many locations are eBird hotspots. Participants are encouraged to explore on eBird for a comprehensive potential species list. Listed under “what to expect” are tips for the day: i.e. what equipment will be helpful and if the trip is primarily a driving or hiking trip. Use these tips to come prepared when signing up for a certain trip. Two unique categories are listed for each trip whether the trip is eBird Enabled and if playback will be used. On trips marked as eBird Enabled, 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.

All field trips will depart from the southwest corner of the Courtyard Marriott in Walla Walla, WA. Trips and trip leaders may be subject to change. Many field trips will require that vehicles have a Discover Pass or other passes. If you have them, please bring them. Also, if you have an FRS radio, please bring it/them. You will need radios with sub-channels, as 11/22 is the birder channel. Note: stated mileage amounts are approximate; exact mileage will vary depending on the exact route taken. The mileages given are round trip to and from the Courtyard Marriott.

Full-day trips leave from the Courtyard Marriott at 550 W. Rose Street in Walla Walla. at 5:30 AM (sunrise: ~5:00 AM PDT) and are expected to return by 4:00 PM. Half-day trips leave at 6:00 AM and are expected to return by noon. Owling trips leave from the same location in the evening at 8:30 PM (sundown: ~9:00 PM PDT) and return several hours later (check specific trip for approximate return time). Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your field trip departure time.

Your trip leader will have a sign with your field trip name. Make sure that you check in with the trip leader when you arrive at the field trip departure 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 Walla Walla on Thursday and on the way home on Monday). We would like to encourage participants to carpool both coming to and leaving from the conference! Communicate with the trip leader regarding exact meeting time and location.

Owl Identification workshop Sunday from 2pm-4pm entitled: “Hoos There?”. This workshop is being held in the Blues 1 Room.

The workshop is being presented by Ann Nightingale, an owl expert in all respects, who is coming to Walla Walla from Victoria BC where she has banded owls at Rocky Point Bird Observatory (southern tip of Vancouver Island) for many years. Ann has also been a key player in a multi-year owl-banding project at a tree farm in Boardman, Oregon.
Here’s a taste of what her workshop will cover:
With their front-facing eyes and wise appearance, owls are favorites of birders and non-birders alike. This workshop will cover identification by sight and sound of owls found in Washington (using photos, audio and museum specimens), and a discussion of the features and behavior that make these birds stand out from the crowd We’ll also cover how to find owls, and what you can do to attract some kinds of owls to your own backyard or neighborhood park.
