Spring Bird Walks with Victor Burgett

February 19th, April 1st, May 6th: 9 am - 12 pm

Meet at the ferry overflow parking lot next to the library, then carpool to the weekly site. (Weather permitting; light rain is okay, but if high winds or heavy rain, will be cancelled.)

Bring binoculars, walking shoes, and dress for the weather.

From February to May the bird population on Lummi Island gradually shifts from winter to summer avifauna.  At first, the focus will be on resident species and wintering water birds.  As spring arrives, so will a variety of warblers, flycatchers, hummingbirds, tanagers, grosbeaks, vireos, and more.  We will visit different sites from week to week, including the Otto and Curry preserves, as well as various places along the shoreline to watch for saltwater species.
