Birdathon 2010

On Saturday, Sarah and I led a Birdathon fundraising trip for the Audubon Society of Portland. It was our fourth year as trip leaders and the 3oth year of Birdathon.


We started the day at Cooper Mountain Nature Park, then drove to coastal town of Newport and back.
During the 13-hour trip, we found 92 species of birds, several of which we had never found on previous Birdathon trips.
As always, we had a great time birding with and getting to know our participants. We are already planning and looking forward to next year's expedition.
