Duration: 3 Hours, 30 Minutes

The varied habitats near Deception Pass, from old growth forest to the open waters off Rosario Head, attract a variety of birdlife.  Expect to see winter songbirds, waterfowl, gulls and other seabirds.  Past trips have yielded Brandt’s, Pelagic and Double-Crested Cormorants, Belted Kingfishers, several ducks and gull species, and more.  We will drive to Lake Erie below Mt. Erie after the Deception Pass foray to look for the several species of ducks and waterfowl that we didn’t see at Rosario.  Discover Pass (parking permit) required.  Meet at March Point Park and Ride at 8:30 am to carpool and dress for the weather.  Bring appropriate gear and snacks; scopes are useful if you have them.  Leader:  Phil Wright; 360.299.8212;
