Join us for a weekend of birding in Union County from Friday, June 22 to Monday, June 25.

North of Baker County and west of the Wallowas, Union County promises some spectacular birding, with possibilities for east-side rarities like American Redstart, Great Gray Owl, Veery, and Gray Catbird.

Itinerary and Registration

The headquarters for the Union County Birding Blitz is La Grande, Oregon. We will meet each morning or preceding evening to assign areas, coordinate efforts, and exchange information.

On the mornings of June 22-25, 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 as early as possible.
