Winter Birds of the Skagit Flats

Winter is one of the most spectacular times to bird in the Pacific Northwest. The Skagit, Samish and Stilliguamish are awash in swans, snow geese, eagles, hawks and falcons.

Then, our field trip will take us to the river flats to observe the winter visitors seeking shelter and food along the Pacific flyway.
