Explore Sauvie Island in search of magnificent eagles, hawks and falcons that spend the winter here. On this special day devoted to raptors, naturalists and hawk experts host activities at four locations around the island. Enjoy guided bird viewing, meet live raptors up close and see hawk identification displays. Free hot drinks and donuts will be available in the morning.
When you check in at Kruger’s Farm Market, you’ll receive a one-day Sauvie Island Wildlife Area parking permit, event guide, birding map, checklist and picture handouts to help identify birds of prey. Los materiales también se encuentran disponibles en español. Allow about three hours to visit all the stations. Bring binoculars and dress for the weather.
