Join professional naturalist and owner of Paradise Birding, Steve Shunk, for this series of short tours around the Silvies River flood plain. Each 2-hour tour will visit a different part of the valley in search of the region's avian abundance. Maximum registration for each group is 9 people, so everyone will have a window seat. Enjoy Steve's expert skills and infectious enthusiasm as you explore the floodplain with a 20-year Malheur veteran!
