February is an amazing time to view wildlife at the Sauvie Island Wildlife Area. Birds of prey such as Bald Eagles and Peregrine Falcons abound. The skies are filled with clouds of thousands of Snow Geese. Majestic Sandhill Cranes stalk the wetlands. Join Portland Audubon and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for a spectacular and fun-filled day of birdwatching (previously known as Raptor Road Trip!) They will provide hot chocolate and donuts (while supplies last), and lots of great naturalists with spotting scopes stationed at sites on the island. Participants travel at their leisure in their own vehicles from site to site to see and learn about the amazing birds that winter on our local Wildlife Refuge. Arrive at any time and stay for as long as you like. This will be a great event for the whole family! Hawks and Hot Chocolate is on Saturday, Feb. 1, from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. at various locations on Sauvie Island. Go online to audubonportland.org.
