Hawk Watching Adventure!

It’s that time of year! Please join longtime KBO board member Dick Ashford for our first hawk watching outing of the season. Low water conditions on the Klamath Basin refuges mean we’ll have our best opportunities by visiting ranchlands, specifically those in Butte Valley and the lower Basin. There are no guarantees (it’s a natural show), but Dick will have scouted the areas beforehand to locate the best spots. If the birds are there, we’ll find ‘em!

We’ll depart Ashland at 8 AM on Saturday, Nov 19th, and return around 5-ish. In order to provide everyone with the best possible experience, attendance will be limited. Therefore, we will carpool (a must!) in 4 vehicles of 4 people each. Everyone will be required to submit proof of vaccination. Thank you for your help in keeping us all safe in these challenging times!

Please be sure to dress comfortably and bring lunch and liquids. Most of our birding will be from the roadside, and walking will be minimal.

Because this outing is so popular (Hawks have charisma!), early signup is recommended. Your seat will be confirmed upon receipt of your non-refundable payment of $40 per person. We’re looking forward to seeing you in the Field Of Wonder!

Klamath Bird Observatory follows CDC guidelines. KBO events are being offered with COVID-19 safety as KBO’s primary concern. Proof of vaccination will be required for all in-person participants. All individuals attending an event must also fill out the Waiver of Liability form that will be emailed to you once you register for the event. Paper copies will be available at the event. Please do not attend the event if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Masks are not required but wear based on comfortability.
