Skagit Audubon

Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature

Washington Park and Ship Harbor, Anacortes: Leader Phil Wright

Date: Sat. Apr 6, 2019 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Duration: 3 Hours, 30 Minutes

Washington Park is both scenic and a good place to see Harlequin Ducks, Black Oystercatchers, Marbled Murrelets, Pacific Wrens, Golden-crowned Kinglets, Red-breasted Nuthatches, and many other birds on the water or in the forest. Plan for a .5 mile walk to Green Point, stopping along the way for both shoreline and forest birds. Next, we will drive to the parking area at the end of Edwards Way to the Ship Harbor Trail.  There are some uneven surfaces. Spotting scopes are useful on this trip.  Contact the leader if you plan to attend and for possible weather changes.  Beginning birders are encouraged to come! Please bring binoculars (and a spotting scope if you have one and don't mind carrying it.) Meet at the parking lot at the beginning of the Washington Park loop drive.  Dress for the weather, anticipating wind along the shore.  Leader: Phil Wright, 360-299-8212.
