Bird Survey Opportunities


Beebe Springs


Come join a twice-monthly e-Bird survey at Beebe Springs, led by Virginia Palumbo.

This walk covers 2 miles of trails along riparian areas along the Columbia River and side channels. The count data will be shared with Ron Fox, the WDFW wildlife biologist for Beebe Springs.

For a map of Beebe Springs' location, cick here.

This is an interesting and important time to contribute to the knowledge of bird populations at Beebe, given the burns that occurred on surrounding hillsides last summer, the recent completion of a new fishing pond, and the newly permanent beaver pond and resultant wetlands.

Surveys occur on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month, with start times variable with the season. E-mail Virginia at vwpalumbo@gmail.com for start times and to confirm attendance.



Walla Walla Park and Horan Natural Area


Beginning in 2011, Susan Ballinger has led monthly bird monitoring walks on Wednesdays, and records species at two point count stations and along a one-mile loop in the Horan Area. A protocol is followed and data is entered into e-bird. Dates are listed on the Chelan-Doulgas Land Trust wesite at: https://www.cdlandtrust.org/whats-new. Outings are free and open to all. Contact Susan directly to learn more at skylinebal@gmail.com.

One question the project seeks to answer is: How has the de-watering of open water ponds in Horan Nature Area changed the observed use by bird species, especially shorebirds and waterfowl?
