Birding by bike

This outing in Corvallis, Ore., sounds like a delightful idea.

Birding by bike serves two purposes: It covers more ground than walking, but it still allows birders to hear and see a myriad of birds they’d never see by car, and access remote spots where traffic never goes.

“We’re going to stop and look at anything along the way,” Boucher assured his group, which included newcomers and seasoned bike birders. With a spotting scope and a number of bird books loaded onto his bike, he led the pack as they made their way slowly through Avery Park, toward the Willamette River boat landing on Crystal Lake Drive.
Do you know of a local club that organizes bike rides for birders?
