Backyard birding basics will be on offer this Saturday, May 11, as the US Fish and Wildlife Service and Neskowin Beach Golf Course partner to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day.

From 7:30 to 11:30 am, the golf course clubhouse will host experts offering tips on species identification and how to make your yard more bird-friendly.

The clubhouse will also be the departure point for guided bird walks to Neskowin Marsh and Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge.

The Neskowin Bird Walk will leave from the clubhouse at 8 am and return at 9:30 am, giving walkers the chance to spot waterfowl, songbirds and more.

The Nestucca Bay Hike will wind for two miles along the moderately difficult Two Rivers Nature Trail, with leaders offering birding identification tips. Hikers will carpool from the clubhouse at 8 am and return at about 11 am.

World Migratory Bird Day is an annual celebration of the thousands of migratory species that travel the world. This year’s event focuses on the problem of plastic pollution, which is a significant threat to migratory birds and other animals. The event will offer tips on how to reduce plastic use for the benefit of migratory birds and the planet as a whole.

The Neskowin Beach Golf Course Clubhouse is located at 48405 Hawk Drive, Neskowin. For more information, contact the US Fish and Wildlife Service at 541-867-4550.
