One change to notice in the schedule is that the Rogue and
Malheur trips - which have been Friday to Sunday and Thursday
to Sunday in past years - are now Saturday to Monday and
Friday to Monday. The Rogue trip includes a play at Ashland's
Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and this will be the first time we
will see a play that was actually written by Shakespeare - the
delightful comedy Twelfth Night.
Klamath Basin is back on the schedule. But the July Wallowa
trip is gone. There is a possibility that a January or February trip
to the Wallowas might be organized on short notice.
- May 20-23 Malheur NWR
- June 10-12 Summer Lake
- August 11-14 Steens
- September 9-11 South Coast
These are group affairs, where we travel in rental vans from
Enterprise, lodge at interesting facilities, and share expenses.
Signup sheets will be available beginning at the January ASC
general meeting. You can also sign up by email to flramsey5@
If there are parts of Oregon you want to add to the schedule,
please consider organizing a tour. Assistance in the planning
and execution is available.
Bicycle birding is a great way to cover more ground than you can on foot. You can bird by ear while you’re riding, instead of missing them while driving a car. Get a little exercise and make your birding less fossil fuel-dependent!
Second Saturday Field Trips
Our Saturday morning local field trip meets the second Saturday of each
month from September through June at the Benton Center parking area, behind
the Cannery Mall, 777 NW 9th, Corvallis. This field trip is geared towards
beginning birders, birders new to Oregon's mid-valley area and persons
looking for a pleasant outing. For more info, contact Bill Proebsting, firstname.lastname@example.org , 541-752-0108. Check the Midvalley ListServ,

field trip for updates. Weather may alter plans, so watch the forecast and
dress appropriately. Trips return to Benton Center by noon.
