Event Name


Port Susan Bay; Classic Autumn Coastal Birding

Meet at the Stanwood QFC/Starbucks parking lot about 8 am.  After introductions we will travel the short distance to the water treatment plant to see the birds congregated on the ponds inside the perimeter of the fence.  Plan to be here until about 10 am and then travel to Port Susan Bay for the incoming tide.  Opportunities for shorebirds, ducks, and early arriving swans or geese.  Finish about noon depending on the tide and the birds.  Dress for the weather and bring appropriate gear and snacks.  Scopes are useful if you have them.

South Fidalgo Island; Deception Pass State Park; Rosario Head and Lake Erie

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;
