Time: 9 AM to 3 PM

This will be an all-day field trip searching the Samish Flats and Skagit 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 while we
search for birds. Bring water, hot beverages, snacks and lunch to eat on the run. If we have time
we will stop at the Padilla Bay Interpretive Center for a break and warm-up. Dress to keep warm
and bring binoculars and a spotting scope if you have one. We will see trumpeter swans, bald
eagles, rough-legged hawks, harriers, red-tailed hawks, and kestrels and will search for other,
less common raptors such as short-eared owls and merlins.
