What do Tufted Puffins, Leach's Storm-Petrels, Belted Kingfishers, Bank Swallows, Rough-winged Swallows, and Burrowing Owls have in common? They nest in Oregon and in unusual places: underground. Take a tour of the state's birds of burrows and their habitats-- from the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge to riverbanks and the high desert. Presenter Marina Richie also will share personal stories from her observations of kingfisher nests, including a citizen science discovery of aerial ramming of an earthen bank.
