Turkey Trot

Saturday, November 17 – 9:00 a.m. to approximately 4:00 p.m.

Super turkey-spotter, Tom Scribner will again lead this year’s annual November
Turkey Trot field trip. We will scour the Blue Mountain foothills in Walla Walla
and Columbia counties in search of wild turkeys trying to exceed last year’s total
of 200. Our search will include Wolf Fork Road south of Dayton, where we
usually see the most turkeys. Along the way we will look for great-horned owls,
Townsend’s solitaires, varied thrush and other birds.
This will be an all-day trip. Most of the roads are paved and a few are wellmaintained
gravel roads. You can leave early if need be, but the entire outing is
always a lot of fun and the scenery alone makes it a trip you won’t want to miss.
We will try to have a walkie-talkie for each car so everyone knows what is being
seen along the way.
Meet at the Harper Joy Theater parking lot at Whitman College and we will car
pool. Bring a friend or two, your lunch, a walkie-talkie if you have one, and don’t
forget your binoculars. Blue Mountain Audubon field trips are free. You do not
have to be a member to attend and families are welcome. Contact Tom if you have
any questions: 529-8628 or tomscribner1947@gmail.com.
