We will explore this wonderful mix of sagebrush steppe, freshwater marsh, conifer-clogged canyons and sub-alpine meadows.  Here Great Basin birds mix with those of the Pacific Slope: Black and Forster’s Terns, Sandhill Cranes and Trumpeter Swans, Wilson’s Snipe and Wilson’s Phalarope, Eastern and Western Kingbirds, wood-pewee and Gray Flycatcher, chat and Horned Lark.  Willets breed in the sagebrush, nighthawks on the ground, Great Horned Owls on cliff faces.  Malheur joins Klamath Basin as the pair of oldest inland wildlife refuges in Oregon.

Harry Fuller has lived in Oregon since 2007.  Before retirement he managed TV and Internet newsrooms in San Francisco and London.  Harry has written three natural history books, including Great Gray Owl in California, Oregon and Washington, and San Francisco’s Natural History, Sand Dunes to Streetcars. Oregon State University Press published Edge of Awe in 2019It is an anthology of essays about Malheur and the Steens. Fuller contributed the chapter on Common Nighthawks at Malheur.

He has been leading bird trips and teaching birding classes since the 1990s. Currently he leads trips for the Malheur Field Station and the Klamath Bird Observatory and provides private guiding service. His birding journal is online: atowhee.blog.
