These events are open to the general public. Participants must accept total responsibility for themselves and their possessions. To enhance the birding experience for all, we encourage participants to read and follow the birding Code of Ethics adopted by the American Birding Association. We meet and try to car pool as fitting.
Come out and enjoy birding with us. Don’t be shy, it is a fun learning experience for all. For more field trip information, inquire at the program meeting, or contact any of the chapter officers.
CURRENT FIELD TRIPS:
Follow Palouse Audubon Society of Facebook where there is occasionally a trip planned by a member or an impromptu outing with fellow birders.

On Wednesday, January 15, 2020, join Tom Fischer as he presents “A Quest To See 38 Warblers – Spring Birding in Northwest Ohio, Tawas Point, Michigan, and Nearby Areas”
Including Yellow-breasted Chat, there are 38 species of Northeast U.S. warbler, some very common (such as Yellow warbler) and some quite rare (Kirtland’s warbler). This talk will describe birding during the past three spring migrations in northwest Ohio and Tawas Point, Michigan. These birding areas are truly unique. Geographically, each area is a “migrant trap,” serving as a focal point for many birds to pause during migration. Each area also provides unparalleled opportunities to view migrating songbirds, especially at short distances. Well-established birding festivals are held annually in each location, attracting thousands of birders each year, and providing opportunities for guided day-trips to excellent birding areas. The talk will provide some practical logistic information about the areas visited, and present photos taken during the past three years. The presentation will try to provide a convincing argument that every active birder should try to visit these areas in mid-May.
We will meet in the Arts Workshop at the 1912 Building in Moscow, ID with presentation beginning at 7:00pm
