Time: 9 AM – Noon
Trip Leader: Richard Carpenter
No registration required. Meet in Bloedel Donovan parking lot, near entrance.
This urban birding trip connects Lake Whatcom, Scudder Pond and Whatcom Creek with
the forest that surrounds them. All of this area is excellent habitat and can provide surprisingly
rewarding birding. Expect to see ducks, maybe a raptor or two, woodpeckers and a lot of
songbirds including nuthatches, wrens, chickadees, finches, juncos, towhees and several
species of sparrows. Dippers and barred owls are regularly seen on the creek near the falls, and
other surprises are possible. All this is reached on well-established trails.
