Skagit Birdwatching Eco Tour

Fall through Spring, the Salish Sea is home to murrelets, scoters, buffleheads, goldeneyes, harlequins, mergansers, loons and grebes.  Beaches and bay shores harbor dunlins, sandpipers, sanderlings, plovers, killdeers and turnstones.  Shallow waters provide habitat to wigeons, mallards, pintails, teals, shovelers, gadwalls and scaups.  These birds (and more!) add a potpourri of diversity to the resident oystercatchers, kingfishers, gulls, pigeon guillemots, cormorants, great blue herons, bald eagles, hawks, owls and open field species.

Perhaps most impressive, and awaited of all, are the thousands of snow geese and swans (both trumpeter and tundra) that overwinter in Skagit Valley.

skagit valley geese and swans

Skagit Valley Geese & Swans Eco Tour

Thousands of migratory snow geese and swans have return to NW Washington’s Skagit Valley! Be prepared to be serenaded by the incessant cacophony of their calls. Watching them move as a giant flock as they feed is simply mesmerizing. With your binoculars, follow individuals to see how they feed and interact with others. Look up high for the incoming groups and watch them land. At times, the entire flock takes flight and that becomes a spectacle in itself!
