Point-No-Point and Foulweather Bluff Field Trip (7/14/01) Highlights

It was a clear summer day for seven birders, led by Jim & Nancy Roberts, to bird the northern coast of the Kitsap Peninsula.

Forty species of birds were noted. The currents around Point-No-Point yielded Heermann’s Gulls, Pigeon Guillemots, Marbled Murrelets, White-winged Scoters, Rhinocerus Auklets, as well as numerous other gulls and some shorebirds.

Nesting and feeding Ospreys and Bald Eagles were seen along the coastal bluffs on the west side of the peninsula. A nature preserve, consisting of a marsh, coastline and second growth woods, was home to wrens, chickadees, American Goldfinches, swallows, thrushes, hummingbirds, flycatchers and Spotted Towhees.
