Malheur Wildlife Refuge
May 22-26, 1997
Rain, some sun, cool and cloudy was characteristic of the first four days and a warm sun on the
last day of our trip to Malheur and beyond.
All told, 90 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, soaked in the Alvord Hot Springs and checked out
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 with many excellent sightings, most notably
a Yellow-crown Night Heron and another family of Great Horned Owls.
We returned to Eugene in the afternoon.
Enjoying this trip were Sylvia Harvey, Joe Lowry, Chuck Mitchell, Denise Sevigny, Claire Tucker
and leader Glenn Meares.
