Neah Bay OPAS/Washington Ornithological Society (no OPAS leader)

November 11, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm


Neah Bay OPAS / Washington Ornithological Society outing

Date & Time: Saturday, November 11, 8am

Leader: OPAS leader had to cancel

Meeting place: Washburn’s Mercantile & Grocery parking lot

Features: This is our annual joint field trip with Washington Ornithological Society [WOS].

This is the time of year for everything and anything to show up in Neah Bay  – a place noted for it’s fall vagrants and rarities; as well as it’s incredible array of local water and land birds. We’ll cover habitat from east to west; north to south. Exactly where – that’s weather dependent and what the birds are doing? Rain dampens – sunshine promotes! Potentially: Backtrack road, Nancy’s place, the waterfront, Boom road, the jetty, Wa’atch river valley, the STP, Hobuck, Tsoo-Yess, the hatchery, Ba’ada loop, and just maybe up Bahokus peak with a look into the Strait. But, we will not trek out to Cape Flattery.

Costs: Field trip is a no-charge; however a Makah Nation Recreational Permit ($10) is required for each vehicle while in the Neah Bay area. One can be purchased at Washburn’s Market or any commercial outlet in the village.

Bring: Binocs, scopes, and personal accoutrements as desired. Remember, this is Rain Time in Neah Bay, so be prepared!
