Across the Cascades the avian activity can vary tremendously. At the peak of songbird migration we might find flycatchers on the west side, Clark’s Nutcrackers in the pines, and Lazuli Buntings and Yellow Warblers on the east side. Not to mention dozens of other species!

This two-night smorgasbord of Cascades birding will feature meals and lodging at the Environmental Learning Center, with ID talks and listening instruction by Libby Mills, as well as three outings to discover who’s moving through. We’ll catch some migratory species as well as year-round residents all coming into their breeding plumage, singing their multitudinous tunes. Beginner birders and experienced life-listers alike are encouraged to sign up for this program. The basics of ID will be covered as well as a conversations about why birds and birding matter.

You’ll go home with a wealth of knowledge in your head and the mellifluous song of the Swainson’s thrush in your ears.
