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 and 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 in the Padilla Interpretive Center for a break and warm-up. Dress to keep warm and bring binoculars and spotting scope if you have one. We will see trumpeter swans, bald eagles, rough-legged hawks, harriers, red-tailed hawks, kestrels and search for other, less common, raptors such as short-eared owls and merlins.
