2018 Birding the Wood River by Canoe

Instructors: Kevin Spencer and Dave Haupt
Date: Saturday, June 16, 2018
Location: Meet in Wood River Wetlands parking lot
Tuition: $165 (including canoe or kayak rental); $60 (bring your own)

Expect to see 70 species or more recorded for this area. To enhance our chances of seeing riparian birds such as Willow Flycatchers and Black-capped Chickadees, we’ll start early with a bird walk at Wood River Wetlands. Then we’ll move to Petric Park, have an early lunch, and put in our canoes midmorning, paddle out the channel and head into Agency Lake. Paddling unobtrusively in cattail, bulrush and wocus habitats, we’ll observe birds at their peak in breeding plumage, songs, and displays. The loud “kalwp” calling of the Pied-billed Grebe and pumping sounds of the American Bittern will come from the marsh, while Franklin’s Gulls could be flycatching overhead. With possible views of “rushing” Western and Clark’s Grebes atop the open water, the day will also be an intriguing hunt for birds performing mating dances and other breeding behaviors.

All canoeing will take place in a sheltered part of the lake. After returning to Petric Park, you’ll have the option to continue with more land birding if desired. Canoes provided by a local outfitter.
