The City of Lincoln City
and Audubon Society of Lincoln City offer family friendly
birding field trips this summer
in Lincoln City Open Spaces
ASLC volunteers will be leading a series of twelve bird walks through the diverse birding habitats of Lincoln City’s Open Spaces from May through September. All trips are free and family-friendly, and binoculars and field guides will be lent to those who need them. These Open Spaces Field Trips will start at 9am 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 website. Field trip sites and dates are listed in the LC Open Spaces website as well as in the ASLC Calendar webpage.
The Klamath Basin Audubon Society is pleased to announce the release of a new television show about the 2016 Winter Wings Festival and birds of the Klamath Basin. The show was created by James Currie, host of the nationally syndicated Nikon’s Birding Adventures, during his visit to the Klamath Basin in mid-February. Local birders Gerry Hill, Kevin Spencer, Dave Hewitt, and Harry Fuller (McMinnville) appear on the show. The Running Y Ranch Resort is the featured lodging partner with support also coming from USFWS, Discover Klamath, and business sponsors Lake of the Woods, The Ledge, and Wild Birds Unlimited. This project was partially funded by the Klamath County Room tax grant program.
The show is available to the general public on YouTube and on the Winter Wings Festival website, www.WinterWingsFest.org. For more information contact Diana Samuels at 541-850-5832.
Actually, they've been back for a while now. The Ospreys have returned to Lincoln City and are currently building their nests for the birth of the next generation.
There are four known nesting sites in Lincoln City: the radio tower at the old Goodwill location; Kirtsis Park; upper parking lot of the Outlet Mall; and, Taft High School field. All but the Outlet Mall site have shown signs of activity by this writer as of May 1st. But we're sure all will be active in the months ahead.
