Sauvie Island Bird Walk (Sandhill Cranes)
September 28 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am
Explore Sauvie Island on a free expert-guided walk with naturalist Elaine Murphy. Situated between Sturgeon and Steelman Lakes on Sauvie Island, this grassy peninsula and its towering oaks offer stellar birding opportunities. This time we’ll watch for Sandhill Cranes, and can also expect to see grassland, upland, and riparian species.
We’ll meet at the Northeast Portland Backyard Bird Shop (1419 N.E. Fremont Ave.) at 8:00 a.m. and then 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. Some of our walks do fill up, so phone the Portland shop (503-445-2699) to reserve your spot as soon as you can. Dress for the weather, and, please, no pets!
