Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature

Kukutali Preserve/Kiket Island

Date: Sun. 19 Nov, 2017 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Duration: 4 Hours

Meet at 8 am at March Point Park and Ride.  Bring Discover Pass to park at the preserve.

This portion of Deception Park State Park is jointly managed by the Swinomish tribe and State Parks and is a lovely place for a walk almost any time of year.  There is very little parking space so carpools must be made, and consolidated to the fewest number of cars possible.  A variety of habitats include brushy edges, views from beaches onto Skagit Bay on both sides of this peninsular island, and a walk on road or trails into mature second growth forest where secretive songbirds and some not so secretive, can be found in sheltered sites.  Round trip walk is about two miles, mostly on the road.  Scopes are useful for distant water birding and binoculars for forest birds.  A thermos and a snack might be welcome part way through the morning.  Letting the trip leader know you’ll attend in case of last minute trip changes due to winter weather can be a wise decision.
