Birding Field Trip-Rosario Area of Deception Pass State Park

Saturday, December 10, 2022

Rosario Area of Deception Pass State Park

9:00 a.m. to Noon

The varied habitats near Deception Pass, from old growth forest to the rocky islands and open waters off Rosario Head, attract diverse birdlife. Expect to see winter songbirds, waterfowl, gulls, alcids. Past trips have yielded Red Crossbills, Brandt’s, Pelagic, and Double-crested Cormorants, Belted Kingfishers, several duck, gull, loon, and grebe species and more. If time permits, we may then drive to Lake Erie below Mt. Erie to look for several species of ducks not seen at Rosario.

Bring binoculars and spotting scope (optional). Dress for the weather. Anticipate wind on Rosario Head. Meet at the parking area for Rosario Beach, Deception Pass State Park. Discover Pass required. Accessibility: From the parking to the base of Rosario Head a smooth, hard-surfaced path crosses gently sloped terrain. The trail to the top of Rosario Head rises about 200 feet in elevation. Total walking distance for this field trip will be about a half mile.
