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.
