Only 14 Days Left Until the 2015
The Latest in Registration Info
If you are from out-of-town and arriving on Thursday, don’t miss the chance to meet local birdwatchers in a very relaxed environment catered by Yummy’s.
Bald Eagles are on the hunt with as many as 50 in some fields. Other raptor counts around the Basin are way up from past years. You’ll enjoy the Golden Eagles (very abundant), Red-Shouldered Hawks, Ferruginous Hawks, Rough-legged Hawks, Peregrine and Prairie Falcons.
Tundra Swans, Snow Geese, and White-Fronted Geese are arriving in greater numbers by the day.
Other Basin specialties like White-headed Woodpeckers, Black-crowned Night-Herons, Sandhill Cranes, and Northern Shrikes are here.
The weather in the Basin has been more like spring than winter lately, so the roads are free of ice and snow and there’s a lot to explore. Of course conditions can change. Check with ODOT for road conditions through mountain passes from the north and south.
