Think ‘pub crawl,’ but with a vehicle (not walking) and birds (not beer…you’re driving!). Meet up with biologists, scientists, wildlife spotters or subject matter experts in the field! We’ve strategically selected several locations throughout Harney County where you can drive to yourself and join a specialist who will help with birding in that area, share information and guidance, and support a great birding experience in the field. Visit sites, get stamps on your Bird Crawl Passport, show us your stamped Passport at Bird Central, and get entered into a drawing for binoculars or a spotting scope! SELF-GUIDED. ONE PASSPORT COVERS BOTH THE NORTH AND SOUTH BIRD CRAWL LOCATIONS – no need to by two passports for one person!
If you want to go to the Bird Crawl locations without having the passport, go for it (you just don’t get the 2024 passport and commemorative sticker)! For free! The 2024 Bird Crawl Passport is designed by watercolorist Mary Lou Wilhelm!
