Saturday, December 3
8 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Do you want to brush up on bird sounds before you participate in the next Christmas Bird Count? In this free, half-day field trip to McDonald Forest, we'll talk about how to notice and identify small birds hidden in the trees and brush. We'll also offer tips on estimating numbers of small birds that you can hear, but can't see.
Bring your binoculars and extra layers, and come prepared for rainy weather.
RSVP to Don Boucher & Lisa Millbank for details and meeting location:email@example.com
Bring your binoculars and come with us! Birds are our common interest, and people at all levels of expertise join our field trips to the best local and regional birding spots. If you’re a beginner, we’ll help you find and identify birds; if you’re an experienced birdwatcher, you can lead us to a favorite place. We enjoy bats and other animals, too…and of course, people interested in plants are always welcome on our outings.
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.
Our Saturday morning local field trip meets the second Saturday of each
month from September through June at the Benton Center parking area, behind

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!
Registration is required and space is limited. Please contact Don Boucher (email preferred)
