As a former Bendian and board member of the East Cascades Birding Club (now
East Cascades Audubon) may I direct you to their excellent


Also if you subscribe to the COBOL listserve you can get the latest updates
and talk with local birders.

For winter birding Haystack Reservoir is popular as are the Prineville
Sewer ponds. I always spent most of my winter birding on Hwy 20 east of
Bend. Lots of great wintering raptors, including ferruginous hawks, rough
legged hawks and the occasional northern pygmy owl.

Smith Rock is also a good birding spot.

Have fun
