Join us for a weekend of birding in Hood River County during our Birding Blitz from Thursday, May 26 to Friday, May 27.
Hood River county is conveniently located a short drive from Portland. This county offers a variety of exciting bird habitats, from the Columbia River Gorge to all the way up to the top of Mount Hood.
Itinerary and Registration
The Hood River County Birding Blitz headquarters will be in Hood River, Oregon. We will finalize meeting location information a few weeks in advance. We will meet each morning or preceding evening to assign areas, coordinate efforts, and exchange information.

On the mornings of Thursday, May 26 and Friday, May 27 we will break into groups and count birds in and near assigned Oregon2020 Hotspot Squares. Teams can spend the rest of the day chasing rarities or exploring interesting looking habitats.
This will be a free event. However, participants will be responsible for their own accommodations and meals. We recommend booking accommodations at nearby lodging and camping around Hood River as early as possible.
