Begin our new year with a visit to Skagit Flats with Skagit Audubon! Birders flock to the Skagit Flats from all over Cascadia to enjoy searching for big white birds of winter and other more subtle birds. We begin our exploration at Fir Island Farm (formerly known as Hayton Access) of the Washington Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Skagit Wildlife Area. There are often raptors, shorebirds and waterfowl to be found from this spot. Bring plenty of warm layers, binoculars and scope if you have one. Contact our leaders, so they can contact you in the event of a weather cancellation.
Leaders: Irene & Mark Perry, email@example.com
