      Birding the Rogue River Preserve

      REGISTRATION will open on April 1 at 6am. Local biologist and writer Brandon Breen will lead a birding trip on this private property along the Rogue River outside of Eagle Point. Habitats include oak woodland, grassland, chaparral, and an extensive floodplain forest with large black cottonwoods and black oaks. Birds may include Lewis’s Woodpecker, Western Bluebird, Oak Titmouse, Pygmy Owl, and Bald Eagle, as well as spring migrants. Brandon has worked on numerous avian research projects throughout the U.S. and abroad, focusing on such species as the California and Andean condors, the Turkey Vulture, and the Gray-crowned Rosy-finch. He completed his BA at Bates College and his MSc at the University of Minnesota. In 2017, Southern Oregon Land Conservancy purchased this iconic 352-acre parcel along the Rogue River. For more information on the conservation of this special land go to our Heart of the Rogue webpage. Guides: Brandon Breen Focus: Birds Limit: 15 Meeting Location: Near Eagle Point. Exact meeting location and directions will be emailed upon registration. Difficulty: Moderately easy and flat at a slow birding pace, walking on roads, trails, and off-trail. Weed seeds and ticks may be present so long pants are advised. A portable toilet is available at the Preserve. Back to Hike Series web page. Oak Titmouse photo by Frank Lospalluto
