Article Purdy/Key Peninsula Field Trip (Oct. 31, 2009) Highlights
14 birders had a surprisingly, considering the forecasts, good day for the trip. We started at the south end of the bridge to Fox Island. This location is always a very good start to the trip as many species can be found here.
Article Malheur NWR Trip (May 17-22, 2010) Highlights
Twelve birders went on this EAS field trip to the Malheur NWR. Seven left on May 17 for the 500 mile drive to Burns, OR. Two left a day earlier and visited John Day area. Hugh Jennings two sisters drove from San Jose, One woman flew to Bend, rented a car and drove to Burns. Four days were spent birding in the Malheur NWR area.
Article Whidbey Island Field Trip (August 21, 2010) Highlights
Eight Eastside on birders enjoyed a full day birding on Whidbey Island on Saturday, August 21st, ending the day with 79 bird species and an interesting mammal list. A Rhinoceros Auklet was seen from the ferry dock just before leaving.
Page Mercer Slough Field Trip (August 27, 2012) Highlights
Seven other birders joined Hugh Jennings for this Monday Hotspots trip to the Mercer slough. It was a beautiful, sunny day in the upper 60s. Typical of August the birding was rather slow, not many birds vocalizing and difficult to see birds in the dense foliage.

Page Greener Herons Hatch Urban Birdathon by Bus
Our Urban Birding by Bus trip for Birdathon 2013 in May was an unqualified success. Seven of us wound our way through eastside urban birding locations via public transportation.
Page Hurricane Ridge Wildflower Walk (Saturday, July 12, 2014) Highlights
We learned several things on this trip. First off, life on the ridge is always interesting. Eastside Audubon has been making this trip for more than 25 years. In the last seven years, we have stood out in the pouring rain, walk through snow, been chilled to the bone with the sun shining brightly, and yes we have been out in the heat at least twice in the past, but this Saturday trip was a pistol, like as hot as one. After a lot of walking, we stood under a small shade tree and called it quits, knowing we had seen an abundance of flowers wherever we looked.

Page Kittitas County Field Trip Highlights - March 18, 2017
Eastside Audubon took a trip out to Kittitas County for sage birds. As has been all too frequent lately the day started out in Issaquah with rain, but we did pick up SONG SPARROW and RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD in the P&R. It rained all the way up to Snoqualmie Pass, with lots of snow piled up, where we did pick up AMERICAN CROW
