We will be focusing on water birds. Large rafts of mixed species may be seen, including grebes, scoters, loons, Harlequin Ducks, brant, mergansers, goldeneye, cormorants, scaup, and some shorebirds including oystercatchers and turnstones.
Meet 9:00 a.m. at the Birch Bay State Park (bathrooms here). We will drive to Semiahmoo County Park and walk along the Semiahmoo Spit trail. Dress for the weather (it can be windy) and bring snacks. Scopes are useful when birds are far out.
To get to Birch Bay State Park, take I-5 exit 266, Grandview Rd/SR-548. Turn left toward Birch Bay and follow Grandview/SR-548 for about 7 miles, turn right onto Jackson Rd, then left onto Helweg Rd to the state park.
