FERNHILL WETLANDS BIRD WALK
November 1, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
Join naturalist and educator Elaine Murphy for a free educational bird walk around Fernhill Wetlands! This local treasure has undergone a large-scale wetland restoration project to enhance wildlife habitat. Waterfowl populations are daily in the thousands from November through March. Spring through fall, see many birds including up to 17 species of shorebirds.
Viewing stands and trails at this birding hotspot are ideal for watching the thousands of migratory and wintering birds that use this wetland near the confluence of Gales Creek and the Tualatin River. Our expert-guided free bird walks are a great way to see and learn to recognize our local birds!
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!
