Scudder Pond & Whatcom Falls Park Field Trip

  • 2499-2301 Electric Ave Bellingham, WA (map)

Trip Leader: Doug Brown

Limit: 12 participants

Registration Required: Contact Doug at 360-647-1657.

Meet at the parking area between the Scudder Pond trailhead and the lagoon on the west side of Electric Ave.

This trip will traverse the park trail system from Electric Avenue past Scudder Pond, into and through Whatcom Falls Park, along Whatcom Creek as far as the whirlpool, and beyond if time and energy allows. This route will provide the opportunity to find birds in a number of varied and productive habitats. All the usual resident bird species such as chickadees, nuthatches, woodpeckers, jays, juncos, towhees and other sparrows, wrens and bushtits are present, and a few late migrants might show up. Barred owls and dippers can also be found in the park and always expect the unexpected. Trip will proceed whatever the weather so be prepared.
