Killin Wetlands/Pacific University Bird Walk

July 15 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Join naturalist and educator Elaine Murphy for a free educational bird walk around Killin Wetlands, a 373-acre marsh where you may get to see three birds that are hard to find: American Bittern, sora and Virginia Rail. Many other water birds may may be seen in this wetland habitat rife with reed canarygrass, cattails, willows, sedges, and rushes. Canopy and higher-elevation birds can be spotted among the mature 2nd-growth Douglas-fir, Western Red Cedar, Oregon White Oak and other deciduous trees and shrubs.

Please register in advance by phoning the Beaverton shop at 503-626-0949.  We’ll meet at the Beaverton Backyard Bird Shop (11429 SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy, Beaverton) at 8:00 a.m. to carpool to the start of the walk.  The walk will last 2 – 3 hours.  Advance reservations are required—we limit the number of participants to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable and educational experience.  Binoculars are encouraged—come by a shop before walk day and we’ll show you our binocular selection, especially tuned for bird watching.  Some of our walks do fill up, so phone the shop (503-626-0949) to reserve your spot as soon as you can!  Dress for the weather, and, please, no pets!
