This weekend we have a special opportunity to go out on the dike at Port Susan Bay on the Nature Conservancy property at the end of Boe Road just south of Stanwood and west of Marine Drive. The site is closed except with special permission which can be obtained at the Mount Vernon office of the Nature Conservancy,( 410 N. 4th street, Mount Vernon WA 98273, 360-419-0817.) Sat., Feb. 4 is the Arlington Eagle Festival, and with it Skagit Audubon has offered to put a few volunteers out on the dike to help non-birders find eagles and other birds. It’s always a fun place to visit, and the odds are, that’s where our snow geese are!
Please join us for a walk on the dike at 8:30 a.m., before the public arrives about 10 a.m. At 10 a.m., plan to turn your hat around and be a volunteer for a couple hours helping newcomers to birding or to the area see and enjoy the birds. Dress for coastal winter birding. If you can make it, even for just the 10-12 volunteering, bring a scope if you
have one. PLEASE CONTACT Libby Mills, our trip coordinator and leader, to let her know she will have a few supporters to help out.
