Saturday May 7, 2022, Birding Camano Island, 8:00 a.m. to noon
Spring on Camano offers a variety of habitats and birds to explore. We’ll start at English Boom, where we may see seabirds, swallows, eagles, passerines, and if we’re lucky, Purple Martins. In the farm fields we’ll drive past, Whimbrels can at times be plentiful during mowing time. Then on to Iverson Spit, with mud flats, shrubs, and woodlands full of spring arrivals. The trip will end at Leque Island, a new restoration site that showcases fertile mud flats and possible shorebirds on one side and the Stillaguamish River on the other (Discover Pass needed for parking). Meet in Stanwood at the QFC shopping center on the north side of 532. We’ll be near the stand-alone Starbucks store. Those wishing to carpool can do so from there. Participants are required to be fully vaccinated for Covid 19. Contact Alice Turner, firstname.lastname@example.org, to let her know you plan to come, and in case plans change.
