The Samish and Skagit Flats are excellent for raptors and swans in the winter. We will work our way around them searching out the best spots for Trumpeter and Tundra Swans (and any waterfowl) and raptors (falcons, hawks, eagles). We won’t overlook any passerines we see. Bring lunch, fluids, a spotting scope and Discover Pass if you have them. We will meet at the north end of the Kingsgate P&R at 7 a.m. and will carpool in three cars (parking is a problem on the Flats). Limit of 11 people. Carpool cost $18/passenger. Registration is required. Call leader Brian Bell at 425-485-8058 to reserve a place. (206-619-0379 morning of trip only.)
