Welcome to Northwest Birding!  Here you'll find our latest travels to enjoy the rich and bountiful bird and wildlife in the beautiful Pacific Northwest (and places beyond).  Our trips involve a combination of camping, hiking, and nature watching as well as birding.  We try to find places that have a balance of all those needs.  My goal of the web site is to share places I've enjoyed (and some not so much) and hopefully inspire a few to go out and enjoy the wonderful outdoors as well!   And even if it doesn't inspire, I hope this web site will at least provide some source of entertainment.  


04.2024 Despite the 2020 fires, Umtanum Creek is an amazing place for wildlife, birdlife and wildflowers

03.2024 Our annual early spring trip to Potholes was filled with wildflowers, 1000s and 1000s of Snow Goose, Yellow-bellied Marmots, and many Sandhill Cranes.

02.2024 The year started off with a "quick" trip to Belize. With the recent addition of a direct flight to Belize City, the small country is easily accessible and as we learned offers a great variety of habitats and snorkeling opportunities.

10.23 Our big trip of the year was to Queensland, Australia. We spent 2 weeks road trip around a small portion of the state - namely near Brisbane and Cairns. There were so many great birds, wildlife and scenery! There's so much more to see than the time allowed.

6.2023 Finding peace and quiet on the Oregon coast wasn't too hard during our stay in Netarts, which gave us easy access to the nearby coastal state parks.

5.2023 A trip to Denver, Colorado for family also gave us the opportunity to explore nearby areas.

4.2023 Superblooms in the desert was one of our highlights during our visit to the Mojave Desert.
