Spring Shorebird Survey

April 24 - April 27

Spring Shorebird Survey

Join Bird Alliance of Oregon and USFWS staff in supporting the regional effort to survey spring migrating shorebirds in the intermountain west. We’ll survey the Silvies Floodplain, and the Double O, Malheur Lake, and waters of the Blitzen Valley for spring migrating shorebirds. This survey is part of a project organized by Point Blue Bird Observatory and National Audubon, with support from the USFWS. Camping will be available. Camping gear will be available for participants to use during this event. There are some driving routes during this survey. All other routes require a minimum of 5 miles of hiking, with the possibility of 10 miles. Conditions in spring are unpredictable. Wet playas can be difficult to walk on/survey. This survey will present an opportunity for adventure! There are no bathrooms available during this survey.

Camping is provided for all of these community science weekends. There is camping gear available through our gear library. BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and disabled birders, bird-enthusiasts, and Malheur aficionados are welcome. Accessibility is noted in program description.
