Clark County Late Winter Search

Saturday: Randy Hill and Cindy McCormack
Sunday: Randy Hill and Cindy McCormack

Note: WOS Sign-ups will be cut off by the weekend of 2/18 and then opened to the Vancouver Audubon Society to fill any remaining slots.

Explore the diversity of Clark County in the transition from late winter to early spring. This trip will concentrate on finding resident, wintering and maybe early-arriving Vancouver area specialties. Target species include Lesser Goldfinch, Red-shouldered Hawk, diving ducks and other waterfowl, loons, grebes and possibly owls.

We will meet at the I-5 Salmon Creek Park-and-Ride off NE 134th St at 7:30 AM and explore areas that could include Ridgefield NWR, Vancouver Lake and lowlands and portions of the Columbia River. Depending on conditions, a Sunday morning trip along the Vancouver waterfront that may reach as far upstream as Steigerwald Lake NWR or an upland forest trip might be added. A Friday afternoon exploration of the Woodland Bottoms also will be scheduled.

For more information and to sign up, contact Randy Hill by email at, or at 360-975-2573 (text preferred).
