Winter is one of the most spectacular times to bird in the Pacific Northwest. The river flats of the Skagit, Samish and Stilliguamish are awash in swans, snow geese, eagles, hawks and falcons. This area is rich with winter avian visitors seeking shelter and food along the Pacific flyway. Class time on Zoom will introduce you to the identification of common species of waterfowl and raptors large and small. The instructor will review for birding on your own the richest areas of the river flats, where Peregrines hunt, Bald Eagles soar, Trumpeter Swans and Snow Geese fill the air.
