Malheur Wildlife Refuge
May 28-31, 1993
The trip to Malheur is always a delight, an oasis teaming with life.
Our group saw 82 bird species.
The most abundant bird was the white faced Ibis, which was in all areas of the Refuge.
Many good sightings and observations were made, among them were two great horned owls at
Benson’s pond, a short eared owl day-light hunting and an American Bittern.
The weather was accommodating: Saturday was a clear, warm spring day;
Sunday overcast, humid and buggy, and Monday was rain, heavy at times, on our way home.
A side trip was made to the Diamond Craters and Round Barn on Sunday.
Enjoying this outing were Betsy Anderson, Jeannette Bobst, Ted Briles, Gerald Davies, Bob Foster,
Sylvia Harvey, Joe Lowry, Denise Sevigny, Carol Stern and leader Glenn Meares.
