Harlan’s Red Tail Hawk

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.


Follow Palouse Audubon Society of Facebook where there is occasionally a trip planned by a member or an impromptu outing with fellow birders.

PAS Birding Trip to Sisters/Bend Oregon for Woodpeckers and More
The Palouse Audubon Society organized a multi-day trip to the Bend/Sisters Oregon area for two full days of birding, focusing on woodpeckers and other regional specialties. The trip was June 14-15, 2021, all-day birding trips led by Steve Shunk, an expert and established birding guide. (Steve Shunk is the author of the book Peterson Reference Guide to Woodpeckers of North America, and operates the Paradise Birding Guide Company, paradisebirding.com, with birding tours in the Americas, Asia, and Europe.)

Target birds included the following woodpeckers.
Downy Woodpecker
Hairy Woodpecker
Northern Flicker
Red-naped Sapsucker
Red-breasted Sapsucker
Williamson’s Sapsucker
White-headed Woodpecker
Lewis’s Woodpecker
Black-backed Woodpecker
Pileated Woodpecker
Three-toed Woodpecker (heard, but not seen)
The views of the woodpeckers were exceptional, as each species was seen at a nesting site, with plenty of opportunities for photos. 

Look for an upcoming program based on photos and information from this trip!
