Hood River County Birding Locations

 

Birding Locations

Eagle Creek Loop return to the top
DeLorme (copyright 2001) Pg 68 C-1    DeLorme (copyright 2008) Pg 24 E-2   geographic coordinates 44 14’ 51” N   121 01’ 04” W
View A Google Map(eBird data needed for this locaton)
Location: To reach this location from I-84 east-bound, take exit 41 and stay to the right.  Cross the old rock bridge and begin birding up the slope.  This road starts in Multnomah County and goes into HR after 4/10 of a mile.  It goes about 2 miles and dead-ends. 
Habitat and Birds: This road travels through mixed forest along Eagle Creek.  Look for Barrow's Goldeneye, Common Goldeneye, Common Merganser, Osprey, Bald Eagle, Belted Kingfisher, woodpeckers, Western Screech-Owl, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Swainson's Thrush, Winter Wren, and Red-breasted Nuthatch just to name a few.
DeLorme (copyright 2001)   Pg 68 C-1   DeLorme (copyright 2008)  Pg 24 E-3   geographic coordinates 45 40’ 11” N   121 53’ 26” W
Location, Habitat, and Birds: Located about 3 miles east of Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River, Cascade Locks is in the NW corner of Hood River County.  The proximity to the river provides birders with good possibilities for good birding.  Tufted Duck was found here in 1995.  Check out the Cascade Locks Marine Park.  The surrounding hills south of town can be very productive for passerines and Band-tailed Pigeons.  Try a short drive up Dry Creek Road (from Central Cascade Locks, take SW Cascade Avenue toward the freeway.  Stay left to SW Ruckel Street.  Cross under the freeway, turn right and you will be on Dry Creek Road).  Another good road to bird is Herman Cr. Road.  Follow the directions to Government Cove and continue on with Herman Creek Road.
DeLorme (copyright 2001) Pg 68 C-1   DeLorme (copyright 2008) Pg 24 E-3 -  geographic coordinates 44 14’ 51” N   121 01’ 04” W
Location, Habitat, and Birds: From exit 44 on I-84 at Cascade Locks, travel east on the frontage road that parallels the freeway.  Turn left on NW Forest Lane and go over the freeway.  Take the first right after passing over the freeway (Industrial Park Way) and explore this whole area.  Return to the frontage road by passing back over the freeway and continue on east on the frontage road.  Shortly, you will come to Herman Creek Road.  Take this road back over the freeway to view the cove.  This location is most famous for a Smew sighting but more expected species would include several duck species including Barrow's Goldeneye, Common and Pacific Loon, Horned and Western Grebe, several gull species, and migrating passerines.

Location:From I-84 east or westbound, take exit #51, Wyeth and travel west on Herman Creek Road 1/4 mile.  Bird along Wyeth/Herman Creek Road.  Cross under the freeway for views of the Columbia River and water birds.
Habitat and Birds:  Birds seen in this area include Bufflehead, Common Goldeneye, Hooded Merganser, Pied-billed Grebe, Western Grebe, Horned Grebe, Bald Eagle, Western Scrub-Jay, migrating passerines.

Location, Habitat, and Birds: From eastbound I-84, take Exit 62 onto US Route 30. Turn left at the top of the ramp onto Cascade Avenue. Cross I-84 and turn left onto Westcliff Drive. The Columbia Gorge Hotel is at 4000 Westcliff Drive, on the right side of the road. If coming from The Dalles, take exit 62 and turn right onto Cascade Avenue, then follow the directions above to the hotel. All of the distances once leaving the freeway are short – just 0.1 or 0.2 mi. Birders may park in the hotel’s parking lot for birding, but please be considerate and do not use parking spaces near the hotel’s entrance. You may want to try the restaurant, though, after exhausting the birding possibilities. On both sides of the hotel there are paved paths along the river. Waterfowl congregate in the quiet waters just below the hotel during the winter season. Scaup can be particularly abundant in this area. The lush gardens provide good habitat for passerines at any season. The waterfall behind the hotel adds an interesting feature to the stop. Pileated Woodpecker may be found at times in larger trees surrounding the hotel grounds.

After 4.5 miles you will cross the White River; just past the river you will see the White River East Snow Park. Turn right (south) here and head down paved Forest Service (FS) road 48. Go 7 miles down FS 48 and turn left onto FS road 4890, which is marked after you turn onto it. Go 3.75 miles and turn left onto FS road 4891, following signs to Bonney Meadows.  This rough 4-mile stretch will take you to Bonney Meadows Campground; take advantage of the outhouse here as it is the only one in the area. Continue past Bonney Meadows Campground to a gated spur road on the left.  Park here and hike up the spur road about 0.25 mile to the observation point at the summit of Bonney Butte. Sun and wind can be intense on the butte, so plan and dress accordingly.
