Field Trip - Semiahmoo Spit

  • Semiahmoo County Park (map)

Trip Leader: Lynne Givler

No registration required

Meet at Semiahmoo County Park parking lot.

Another first Saturday field trip like May 4 trip but with a different leader and probably some different birds too. Every month is different at Semiahmoo so take part regularly. Summer birding at Semiahmoo includes lots of breeding songbirds as well as the usual resident species. Warblers will be singing as well as willow and pacific-slope flycatchers and you might see a summering harlequin duck or black oystercatchers on the beach.

Note: Semiahmoo trips will continue through the summer on July 6 and August 3.

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.

  • 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.
