June 22 (Saturday)- Wild Horse Wind Farm

Scott Downes will lead a trip to Wild Horse Wind Farm near Vantage. This trip is a combination birding and wind farm tour. We’ll join Nicholas Mejia with Puget Sound Energy on a tour of the wind farm where participants will get to learn about the facility and explore inside the turbines. Mixed with the wind farm tour, we’ll be able to bird the shrub-steppe habitat there, where shrub-steppe species such as Sage Thrasher, Sagebrush Sparrow and Loggerhead Shrike are found. Following the wind farm tour, we’ll do a few birding stops on the way back to Yakima. Bring a hat, binoculars, lunch, sunscreen, and water. Wear appropriate and sturdy foot wear. Drivers should have the Discover Pass. We’ll leave Yakima at 6:30 am and return by 3:00 pm. To sign up and get the meeting place, please contact Scott at downess@charter.net.
