Malheur National Wildlife Refuge

May 11-15, 1995

A little rain, some sun, cool and cloudy, but no bugs was the weather characteristic of the five-day trip to Malheur and beyond. All told, 92 bird species were seen. Friday and Saturday were spent birding and seeing and listening to the sights and sounds of Malheur, Diamond Craters and the Round Barn. Sunday we left Malheur, had brunch in Fields and viewed a family of four Great Horned Owls nesting in the cottonwoods nearby. We also visited Borax Lake, had a delightful soak in the Alvord hot springs, checked out another hot springs west of Denio Junction and viewed the Pelican Rookery at Pelican Lake north of Adel on our way to Paisley for dinner and camping along the Chewaucan River. Monday morning we toured the Summer Lake Refuge where we had excellent sightings of Black-necked Stilts and American Avocets and then on to Fort Rock for lunch and return to Eugene in the afternoon. Enjoying this trip were Michael Allender, Jane Hackett, Sylvia Harvey, Joe Lowry, Chuck Mitchell, Royal Murdock, Clair Tucker, John Wish and leader Glenn Meares.
