Ladd Marsh Bird Festival

5/14/2021 - 5/16/2021

Description

The Ladd Marsh Bird Festival is scheduled at the height of Spring migration and nesting in the Grande Ronde Valley and to commemorate World Migratory Bird Day. Few, if any, places in Union County have a more diverse bird population than can be found at the Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area. Over 200 species of birds either visit or live permanently at Ladd Marsh. Only on the bird festival weekend, birders have the opportunity to explore areas of the wildlife area generally closed to the public providing increased opportunities to see an abundance of ducks, geese, raptors, passerines and shore birds. While many birders prefer to explore the area on their own, a number of birding stations will be staffed by local birders on Saturday to assist novice birders in finding and identifying birds. Also included in the event are an evening presentation, field trips and a kid’s activity area where young people can build a birdhouse, sign up to become a Junior Birder or participate in other fun activities. The festival is an uncrowded, non-competitive birding opportunity your whole family can enjoy.
