Woodpecker Wonderland near Bend Oregon Lodging

Central Oregon with the ponderosa pine forests of the Metolius River Basin and Douglas fir forests just west of Santiam Pass, is home to 11 species of nesting woodpeckers.  The Three Sisters Loop of the Oregon Cascade Birding Trails traces portions of some of Oregon’s most  Scenic Byways, offering stunning scenery and incredible diverse habitats at nearly 50 prime birding sites.

The Dean Hale Woodpecker Festival is scheduled for mid-June. The event is loaded with half and full day fields trips, speakers and live music.  Camp Sherman, the site of the Woodpecker Wonderland Festival is only about a half hour from Bend Oregon Lodging options of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild.

In Sisters, a small town with big appeal, surrounded by beautiful ponderosa pine forests and the Cascade Mountains, the Blue Spruce Bed and Breakfast is just a couple of blocks from downtown where local artists feature their work in the many local shops and galleries, including work in wood, glass, pottery and jewelry.

Just minutes from downtown Sisters, Long Hollow Ranch is in the heart of one of the Northwest's most scenic recreation areas
