The Lincoln City Audubon Society will be looking for everything from wrens to raptors when it tackles a birding walk to Hostetler Park and Devils Lake State Park this Friday, March 8.

This easy walk starts at the park on the north bank of the D River just east of Highway 101, and heads over the Devils Lake State Park boardwalk and through the campground to the dock on Devils Lake. The group will be watching for year-round residents of the wetlands, such as wrens, sparrows and woodpeckers. From the D River and the dock on Devils Lake, walkers can expect to see resident wading birds, water birds such as grebes and ducks as well as raptors.

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

The two-hour walk starts at 9 am in the parking area adjacent to Hostetler Park. Turn east on NE 1st Street, at Comfort Inn gravel road and park in the lot adjacent to the D River.

For more information, call 541-992-9720.

This excursion is part of a series of birding tours led by Audubon field trip leaders in partnership with Lincoln City Parks and Recreation and Explore Lincoln City.
