Trip Notes

Mary and I made a special weekend trip to the Malheur Refuge in Harney County, Oregon, lead by Steve Shunk of Paradise Birding. Our group of 5 birders and two guides met at Frenchglen on Thursday evening and birded the refuge and surrounding area until Sunday noon. We had a nice drive down from the Redmond airport, watching for raptors on power poles. Most of our roadside sightings were "usual suspects," but we were thrilled to see at least 5 Prairie Falcons along the road.
