The Skagit Wildlife Area has several sections to explore for birding. Ducks and geese, who will be moving in Sept. and Oct. as the migratory songbirds depart. The wetlands always offer a chance of finding some shorebirds and other water associated birds. Bring your Discover Pass and park at the lot straight ahead as you enter the wildlife range. Bring binoculars and scopes, snacks and water for this flat walk of about three miles by ponds, hedgerows, and finally the estuary. This is a great walk for beginners and experienced birders alike. Leaders: Phil Wright and Ivar Dolph,
