Field Trip: Harris Creek Road
Join Southwestern Idaho Birders Association (SIBA) for a fieldtrip on Harris Creek Road to Boise Basin and Garden Valley. Meeting location: Horseshoe Bend Chevron back parking lot, 7:30 a.m. The Harris Creek road from Horseshoe Bend to Idaho City climbs through several habitat changes before entering Boise Basin with its Ponderosa Pine habitat. Making a loop to Garden Valley and back to Horseshoe Bend will make for full day and hopefully some variety in the birds we see. We hope to stop at Schoolhouse Gulch area that has a good selection of Ponderosa Pine habitat and its accompanying birds, like White-headed Woodpecker, Pygmy nuthatches and Western Bluebirds. These residents and early migrant arrivals will be tuning up for spring and should be available for us. This will be our first foray into forested habitats this year. The Harris Creek road is narrow and winding. We want to carpool as much as possible. We will return to Horseshoe Bend at days end. We want to keep attendance to around 4-5 cars. If you plan to attend, an RSVP while not required, would be nice. Plan for a full day. Bring warm beverages, snacks, lunch and warm clothes. Be prepared for unpredictable spring weather.
