Samish Flats and Samish Island – Washington State Discover Pass required

Trip Leader:  Neil O’Hara,

We will look for raptors, waterfowl, western meadowlarks, and shorebirds on the Samish Flats.  We’ll make one or two stops on the way to the West 90 and walk while there (duck hunting season will be over).  Our stop by the church on Samish Island should turn up some passerines and we’ll check out the nearby Skagit Land Trust property.  The Samish Island Day Use Access should yield sea ducks, brant, cormorants, loons, grebes and gulls.  Bring binoculars, spotting scope (if available) and dress for cold and wet weather.  All participants must be fully vaccinated and carpooling is by private arrangement or at the discretion of participants on the day.  Additional information is provided upon registration here:
