Update on Birding Trip - Sunday, March 25, 8:45 - noon.

posted Mar 23, 2012, 10:07 AM by Roxie Rochat
Distant views of a few Snowy Owls are still being seen around Stanwood by a few lucky people, although they're becoming more elusive.  Other target birds: American Kestrels, Rough-legged Hawks, Short-eared Owls, Northern Harriers, Red-tailed Hawks, possibly a Merlin or Peregrine Falcon chasing flocks of Dunlin, and still lots of Snow Geese.  Tree Swallows are back, so we may see other early spring migrants as well as year-round celebrities like the Black-crowned Night Herons.

Even if you can't join us, be sure to check out what other Washington birders are seeing on the Tweeters Listserv.  There are often updates on the Stanwood owls as well as birds all across the state.

Meet at 8:45 at Terry's Corner Park and Ride, 860 N. Sunrise, behind Camano Island Coffee Roasters (green bldg.) to stage in carpools and get directions. Dress in layers appropriate for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, and bring binoculars or scopes.  Sorry, no dogs allowed on the guided walk. Tour will take place rain or shine; no reservations required.  We will probably visit places that require a Discover Pass or WDFW vehicle use permit so bring it if you have one but you can carpool with others if you don't. For more information, email or call 360-387-7024.
