Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature

Birding Field Trip-Wylie Slough

Date: Sun. Nov 6, 2022 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Sunday, November 6th – 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Wylie Slough, Conway (Skagit Wildlife Area-Headquarters’ Unit)

We will take advantage of a rising tide to meet at mid-day and watch for shorebirds and waterfowl to move in as the tide rises.  This field trip will be geared toward the beginner or relatively new birder.  Depending upon needs and skill levels we can work on finding birds in binoculars, field marks and habitats.  Loaner binoculars will be available by request.  Wylie is a wonderful place for all levels of birders.  Waterfowl, perching birds and raptors of all types may be seen on any given day.  The terrain is flat with good footing suitable for most abilities.  There have been recent changes at Wylie, and we can talk about them during the field trip.  Discover Pass required.  Meet at the east parking lot near the boat launch for introductions.  We will work on our birding skills and slowly walk up to about one-half mile.  Reservations are not required and contact trip leader, Jeff Osmundson, to reserve binoculars or with questions.
