At Salem’s Riverfront park the two full-siuzed eaglets were standing in their shaded nest at noon. We saw one parent fly south on a fishing run. Also present: two mother Mallards, each with a quartet of ducklings, good swimmers and feeders so at leasst two weeks old. A Spotted Sandpiper flew across the slough twice–perhaps a nearby nest. House Finches singing, also robins.

Leader: Harry Fuller
Please contact the leader at to confirm your registration for this trip.

Luckiamute Landing State Natural Area is near Albany, between Salem and Corvallis. The park includes two sections, a 615-acre north tract and a 300-acre south tract — exceptional habitat crucial for migrating birds, waterfowl, shorebirds, amphibians, and turtles.

As we will be visiting an active bird banding station, attendance is limited to the first nine (9) people who sign up with Harry via email. You will receive additional information about this trip from Harry. We anticipate that this field trip will fill, so early registration is encouraged.
Birds we expect to see in the hand include Swainson’s Thrush, Song Sparrow, Spotted Towhee, warblers, and other mobile species. Terrific photo ops.
