Late November Field Trip

Fishhook and Charbonneau Parks, Ice Harbor Dam Saturday, November 30—
9:00 a.m. to approximately 4:00 p.m. Leaders: Mike and MerryLynn Denny

Join Mike and MerryLynn Denny as we head up Sudbury, Luckenbill and
Touchet North Roads to Fishhook Park and Charbonneau Parks along the
Snake River – looking for winter raptors and shrikes along the way. We
will walk and bird the park with owls and winter finches as our target
birds. The next stop will be at the overlook above Ice Harbor Dam where
we will look for American White Pelicans, both species of goldeneye,
mergansers, and other waterfowl; and hopefully loons and other winter
visitors. Mike will chum for gulls, which will bring them in close for
easier identification. There will be bathroom stops at Charbonneau Park
and Ice Harbor Dam. For those that want to continue – weather permitting.

Then we will head west to McNary National Wildlife Refuge and watch the
fly-in of geese and ducks that usually starts around 3:00.

Meet at the Harper Joy Theater parking lot at Whitman College and we will car pool.
Bring a friend or two, your lunch, binoculars, and dress for the weather
which is often windy by the river. Blue Mountain Audubon field trips are
free. You do not have to be a member to attend and families are welcome.
