Can I just say WOW? We had such an amazing time learning at and hiking through the Portland Audobon Society Sanctuary. We hike and camp a LOT and spent a lot of time out of doors, but to find this amazing ancient forest literally two minutes out of Northwest Portland was such a surprise!! A few of us home school families (Uncle Jesse, our resident bird expert, joined the kids & me) spent the morning learning about birds, their calls, their habitats...and it was so much fun! We started with some bird and bird call identification before heading on a gorgeous hike through the sanctuary. I cannot express how beautiful it was, and pictures do not do it justice!! We hiked woodpecker trail, bluejay trail...listened for birds, spotted a few and found some friends like newts as well. We'll be heading to Powell's for a new bird guide and picking up some more binoculars very soon.
