BIRDING – Come see tens of thousands of migrating ducks and geese at the McNary National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday.

Viewers can watch the birds from a newly constructed bird blind. The blind’s grand opening will start at 9:15 a.m.

Additionally, there will be guided birding tours led by refuge staff and the Lower Columbia Basin Audubon Society, as well as a presentation by professional nature photographer Larry Umthum.

The McNary National Wildlife Refuge is two hours from Spokane (64 Maple Street, Burbank).
