Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature

Whatcom County Shores

Date: Sat. 4 Nov, 2017 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
Duration: 6 Hours

 

The field trip will visit Sandy Point, Birch Bay State Park, Semiahmoo, and Blaine Harbor.  Depending on how the time goes, we may make other stops.  The stops will focus on water birds and move along with the best tidal conditions we can get.  We target all three scoters, three loon species, grebes, and Long-tailed Ducks, plus shorebirds (e.g., Sanderlings, Black Turnstones and Dunlin).  We can also use our gull ID skills, should we happen to see some groups.  Bring binoculars, scopes, lunch, and wind and rain gear.  If coming from south of Bellingham, meet and be ready to leave in carpools by 8 am from the Chuckanut Park and Ride lot just south of Exit 231 off I-5.  There are no restrooms there, FYI.  We’ll join our leader, Andrea Warner, at 8:45 am at the ARCO Gas Station on Slater Road.  Take I-5 Exit 260, turn right from the off ramp and you’ll see the ARCO station on your right.  Discover Pass (parking permit) required for parking at Birch Bay State Park.  Leader: Andrea Warner, warneraj@me.com, home phone 360.734.9881, cell 360.224.9291.
