“Everyone’s chewin’ on the Kokanee…”
This week, Ranger Talia got the awesome opportunity to go out with the PGE Round Butte wildlife biologists Rob and Thad to assist with their annual waterfowl survey on Lake Billy Chinook. Talia learned all about the different types of birds that just love the lake in the Cove Palisades State Park, and their interesting features. She also obtained an awesome species list for Jefferson County, so she can develop her waterfowl, raptor, and small-bird programs for the exciting 2013 Summer Season that is just around the corner. View the photo story below to see some of the great sites during the boat tour!
