Eagles N' More

February 20-21, 2007

Leaders of this trip were Rick Ahrens and Liz Reanier. The bus left Shopko at 8 a.m., traveling Hwy 58 and Hwy 97 to Klamath Falls. We had rest stops at the Ranger Station and Greenwaters Park. We had lunch at Applebee’s in Klamath Falls. We then went out birding and had great views of eagles on the ice where the highway parallels the railroad tracks going into Klamath Falls. We found some barren area, went to the Refuge Center and then found the birds. The number of reported sightings of eagles out on the flyway was very low, so we canceled that! No real early risers! Everyone dined on their own, had a good night’s sleep and were finishing breakfast when all the power in Klamath Falls went out. We didn’t have anyone stuck in elevators, so went back out to the Refuge for more birds. We had awakened to four inches of snow in town — higher in the rural areas. After lunching at Applebee’s, we headed home, having to chain up. Although some plans had to be changed, everyone had a great time. The following birds were identified: Bald Eagles, Red Tailed Hawks, Kestrals, Northern Harrier, Magpie, Tundra Swans, Lesser Scaup, Ring-necked Ducks, Snow geese, White Fronted Geese, Rough Legged Hawks, Pintail Ducks, Buffalo head Ducks, Mallard Ducks, Barrow’s Golden Eye Ducks, Ring-necked Pheasants, Coots, Shovelers, Ruddy Ducks, Great Blue Herons, Rock Pigeons, California Quail, Black Crowned Night Heron, Ravens, Greater Yellow Legs, American Wigeon.

On the trip were members: Rick Ahrens, Don Baldwin, Ewart Baldwin, Pat Bitner, Barbara Chinn, Sharon Cutsworth, Dora Harris, Verna Kocken, Earline Kopriva, Tom Kopriva, Wendy Mitchell, Liz Reanier, Chris Shuraleff, Mary Ellen West, Brigette Williams and Vera Wooley, and nonmembers: Lee Honeyman, Erla King, Rob King, Mary Sherriffs, Ron Sherriffs, Annabelle Street, Doris Wimber, Jerry Wojcik and Suzy Wojcik.
