This will be an all-day field trip searching Fir Island, Skagit Flats and Samish Flats for raptors, snow geese, trumpeter swans and any other interesting birds that happen to be around. The trip will begin and end at the Alger Park & Ride, I-5 exit #240. We will carpool in three cars from that location while we search for birds. Bring water, hot beverages, snacks and lunch to eat on the run. If time allows, we will stop at the Padilla Bay Interpretive Center for a break and warm-up. Dress to keep dry and bring binoculars and a spotting scope if you have one. We will see trumpeter swans, bald eagles, rough-legged hawks, American kestrels, short-eared owls and search for other less common raptors such as gyrfalcons and merlins.
