Egrets? They’ve had a few.

Easy-to-reach birding sites are on the agenda for the Saturday, Oct. 27, outing from the Audubon Society of Lincoln City, which will be tackling the Head to Bay Boardwalk and Friends of Wildwood Trails.

This two-hour walk begins on the level boardwalk adjacent to Devils Lake wetlands, but the group will continue on rougher Friends of Wildwood trails to search for winter resident woodland birds. Walkers will get the chance to see and hear year-round resident sparrows, woodpeckers, wrens and raptors as well as wetlands wading birds and ducks.

The group will meet at 9 am the boardwalk next to the Devils Lake wetlands, located on NE West Devils Lake Road.

No registration is required and beginning birders are welcome. Binoculars and guidebooks are provided for those who need them.

This walk along the wetlands and forests in the center of Lincoln City is part of a series of birding tours led by Audubon in partnership Lincoln City Parks and Recreation and Explore Lincoln City.

For more information or directions, call 541-992-9720 for more information.

Audubon Society of Lincoln City offers free birding field trips to birding sites throughout Lincoln and Tillamook Counties on the second Saturday of most months during the year. Beginning birders are welcome. Binoculars and guidebooks are available for those who don’t have their own, and carpooling is usually an option.

For a list of upcoming excursions, go to and mark your calendar for the Saturday, Nov. 10, bird walk at Knight Park on the Salmon River and for the December 1 walk on the Salishan Nature Trail.
