Field Trip - Semiahmoo Spit

  • Semiahmoo County Park (map)

Trip Leader: Paul Woodcock

No registration required

Meet at Semiahmoo County Park parking lot

This is the month to switch gears out at Semiahmoo. Most of our wintering waterfowl have departed north to the interior, so we will divide our time between the beaches and the wooded shoreline. Expect to see rufous hummingbirds, orange-crowned and Wilson’s warblers, common yellowthroats,  and possibly black-headed grosbeaks as well as our charming local marine and forest residents. Whether you are a beginner or a long-time birder, you will enjoy being part of an amiable group of regular participants on this monthly outing co-sponsored by Whatcom County Parks. Beginners will find experienced birders willing to share their  knowledge.

Our field trips are free and open to anyone who is interested. Bring your friends!

  • Beginning birders are very welcome.

  • Carpooling is encouraged and even required for some sites with limited parking.

  • Preregistration is often required to limit numbers and reduce disturbance.

  • Dress for the weather, in layers, and wear waterproof clothing and footgear as needed.

  • Severe weather may cancel a trip; contact your leader if concerned or if you cancel.

  • Bring binoculars, scope, field guide or necessary parking passes if you have them.

  • Pets are not allowed on field trips.

  • Like most organizations, NCAS now requires participants to sign a waiver to participate.

  • We are always looking for trip leaders or assistants. If you’re interested please contact us.
