Join trip leader Randy Hill and one or more co-leaders Friday March 8 – Sunday, March 10 to explore the diversity of Clark County in the transition from late winter to early spring. This trip will concentrate on finding resident, wintering and early-arriving Vancouver area specialties.

Target species include continuing rarities, early flycatchers, Red-shouldered Hawk, diving ducks and other waterfowl, loons, grebes, shorebirds and possibly owls.

We will meet at the I-5 Salmon Creek Park-and-Ride off NE 134th Street at 7:15 AM Saturday 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 and optional morning birding in Kalama with Russ Koppendrayer are additional possibilities.

If you have them, please bring a Federal Access Pass and Discover Pass, as well as radios to communicate between vehicles.

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

Limit 12. Sign-ups close on 3/5 and will open to Vancouver Audubon Society members at that date.
