The Yaquina Birders & Naturalists are offering a free guided bird walk on Saturday, Sept. 19. Laimons Osis will lead a field trip to one of the most bird-rich areas in Newport. The expedition will start with a walk along the Estuary Trail at the OSU Hatfield Marine Science Center to look for shorebirds, terns, birds of prey and songbirds. Following that will be a quick drive over to the south jetty of Yaquina Bay to see Brown pelicans, cormorants, and seaducks.
Meet by the flagpole in the parking lot of the Hatfield Marine Science Center (2030 S.E. Marine Science Dr. in the South Beach area) at 8 a.m. and dress or bring clothes for variable weather. The field trip will last about two hours. This bird walk is open to everyone.
