The Audubon Society of Lincoln City will head to the Salmon River this Saturday, Nov. 11, for a birding and photography field trip.

No prior birding experience is necessary, and binoculars and field guides are available to borrow. While this is an opportunity to practice photographing birds with other bird photography enthusiasts, people who just want to bird watch are also encouraged to come along.

The group will meet at 9 am at the intersection of Savage Road and the Salmon River. At the junction of Highway 101 and Three Rocks Road North, travel west for 2.3 miles. At the “Y” in the road, turn right on to Savage Road and follow it to the end at the Salmon River.

For more information, call 541-992-9720.

Audubon Society of Lincoln City offers free birding field trips with experienced trip leaders on the second Saturday of most months during the year. Beginning birders are welcome. Binoculars and guidebooks are available for those who don’t have their own, and carpooling is usually an option. For a list of upcoming field trip descriptions, go to http://lincolncityaudubon.org/calendar.html, and mark your calendar for the Sunday, Dec. 17, Christmas Bird Count in the Lincoln City area.
