Eco Adventure Tour
Sauvie Island offers outstanding bird watching opportunities year-round. A designated “Important Bird Area,” the island offers an abundance of migrating ducks, geese, cranes, and waterfowl during the late winter, spring, and summer months, including Canada, Cackling and Snow Geese, Sandhill Cranes, Tundra and Trumpeter Swans, Great Egrets and the Portland city bird, the Great Blue Heron, whose rookeries can be spotted at various locations on the island. Of the 486 bird species found in Oregon 250 of these have been known to use the Sauvie island wild life area.
One of the greatest attractions is the abundant Bald Eagles and Ospreys nesting and raising their offspring April – July. You might even see sea lions migrating up the river following the spring salmon entering the Willamette system. But the real attraction is the northern half of the island, which is wildlife refuge. Here one can see and hear geese and ducks in the thousands, together with swans, cranes, bald eagles, northern harrier and other raptors.
