The high desert lava fields of Central Oregon are a delightful place to find geological wonders and birds that you don't often see in other locations.

Excellent program, highly qualified leaders, delicious meals, comfortable/convenient lodging, friendly participants - what more could you ask for? Birds? Over 108 species, many of them new to my list. A great week.

The birding program at Bend was a wonderful birding experience. The leader was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, the accommodations were comfortable and convenient, and the birding sites were varied, from Basin and Range to Mountain and Riparian. We saw a good variety of birds in beautiful surroundings.
