Here’s to birding the shortest days of winter. Weaverling Spit is a walk and a scoping field trip on the western edge of Fidalgo Bay, land owned by the Samish Indian Nation. We have permission to go out and inspect the neighborhood for avifauna, a chance to seek both songbirds in the vegetation and water birds on the bay. Directions: drive parallel to Hwy. 20 on Fidalgo Bay Rd., just south of Anacortes, and turn off onto Weaverling Rd. Meet at the parking lot, located at the RV Park which is across the Tommy Thompson Trail and to the right. Minimal walking. Scopes will help with the water birds and we will share with those who don’t have scopes.
