This is one of the leader's favorite parks in Seattle. The park is composed of 530 acres of varying habitats that include saltwater beaches, meadows, wetlands, fresh water ponds, and mixed forests, all on a bluff in Magnolia. It is a true treasure of the area. It is home to 90 species of birds. Residents include Anna's Hummingbirds, California Quail, and Hutton's Vireos, which are joined in the spring by flycatchers, swallows, and warblers.
Bring a lunch if you wish, snacks, drinks, binoculars, and good spirits! Meet before 8 a.m. at the north end of the Wilburton P&R (I-405, exit 12). We'll be back about 1 p.m. Carpool $4/passenger. Make $25 Birdathon donation online or bring cash or check. No registration required. Leader: Tricia Kishel, (206) 948-3922.
