ASLC offers family friendly
birding field trips this summer
in Lincoln City Open Spaces

The Knoll

ASLC volunteers lead a series of eight bird walks through the diverse birding habitats of Lincoln City’s Open Spaces from May through August. All trips are free and family-friendly, and binoculars and field guides will be provided to those who need them. These Open Spaces Field Trips start at 9 AM and last about two hours. Nearly all the walks are ‘easy’ and adjacent to convenient parking.

Open Spaces bird walks are sponsored by Lincoln City Open Space Program. As part of encouraging public enjoyment and awareness of Lincoln City Open Space sites, the program is supporting the printing of a graphic guide to birds that kids and families may see at these sites. 

For more detailed information and maps of the sites, see the Lincoln City Open Spaces web site.  http://www.lincolncity.org/index.asp?SEC=683EF843-6124-4FFE-9C66-AFB2AAE055CE&Type=B_LIST

What a Fun Count, Indeed!
Facilitated and Reported by Dawn V

This spring’s North American Migratory Bird Count in Lincoln County resulted in 9 teams counting a total of 129 species on the 2nd Saturday of May.

Individual count was 8,245 birds thanks mainly to the large numbers of MURRE and CORMORANT at Pirate Cove as well as good-sized groups of PACIFIC LOON flying by while counting the Murre.

Special thanks to Deb Holland who birded a number of areas that we didn’t have covered and graciously allowed me to use her Saturday eBird reports for the count. She saw our only RUFFED GROUSE, MOURNING DOVE, and WESTERN SCRUB JAY, among others.  Desi and I were delighted to have a SORA out in the open at Eckman Lake - it was a life bird for me. ASLC had a huge group on their bird walk (38 people), and saw our only DOWNY WOODPECKER (thank you Caren Willoughby for compiling). Linda and Johnny Fink, the 4-county wonder-team, added our only RED-BREASTED SAPSUCKER, WESTERN WOOD-PEWEE, AMERICAN DIPPER, and NASHVILLE WARBLER. Ernie Rose walked his neighborhood and saw our lone WOOD DUCK. 

  This is truly a fun count and I hope more of you can come over to the coast and help us out this fall on the 3rd weekend of September for the next North American Migratory Bird Count- mark your calendars and come join us!

A big THANK YOU to all of our volunteers!
