Meet forward on main passenger deck for the 9:30 am sailing from Port Townsend. Dress for weather, wear comfortable walking shoes, bring your optics, and something to eat/drink. I will carry a spotting scope. We will look for birds during the to and from crossings. On Whidbey Island we will go over the hill through the woods to the shore of Crockett Lagoon. We will walk about 1.5 miles. Our return is on a circular route to the beach and the ferry terminal. We will plan to catch the 1:15 pm sailing from Coupeville (aka. Keystone). RSVP providing a phone number and/or email address in case the trip needs to be cancelled due to weather or ferry problems. Leader Ron Sikes, phone 360-385-0307 or email b1rdbrush@gmail.com.

MINI-TRIPS

Some Birding Field Trip Leaders have agreed to lead trips around the area as part of their normal birding activities and would enjoy company without spending energy on announcing and coordinating trips. If you are interested, check our home page for the latest offerings. These will be great opportunities for less experienced birders to improve their skills and everyone to learn about new locations.


Please bring binoculars and scopes (if you have any) and wear appropriate footwear and clothing. Heavy rain will cancel most trips but light rain will not; check with the leader when in doubt. Do not bring pets.

Cautionary Note – All persons participating in field trips assume all risks of whatsoever nature or kind and neither AAS nor the trip leaders accepts any responsibility for the actions of any persons who freely participate.



Note: A short description of birds seen should be posted under "Sightings" on this website the following day (see link on banner above).
