Change of Date to Sunday, Jan 19th- Field Trip-Birding Winter Wonderland

Due to more snowy conditions expected for Saturday, the field trip is now scheduled for Sunday. Same time-9:00 and same meeting spot-Whitman College Harper Joy parking lot.

On January 18, join Mike & MerryLynn Denny on a quest to find winter birds such as Pine and Evening Grosbeak, Common Redpoll, Ruffed Grouse, Goshawk, Owls. Weather permitting we will drive and walk in the foothills east of Walla Walla.

The all day trip will leave the Whitman College parking lot at 9 am and return around 3 pm.  Dress for the weather – wear appropriate footwear. Bring binoculars, hot drink and lunch. Must be able to walk a mile on gravel road which may be snow-covered, but often out of the fog and into the winter sunshine!
