Experience the sights and sounds of our Birds of Winter!
The Skagit Valley Geese Tour takes you on an Adventure in search of the thousands of snow geese & smaller flocks of tundra and trumpeter swans that overwinter in our farm fields. We’ll also be on the lookout for bald eagles (and their nests), hawks, ducks, herons and small shorebirds.
Ready to listen to the cackling cacophony produced by the highly gregarious geese and the unmistakable honking of the swans?
Our knowledgeable, friendly local guide (and owner) Stephanie will teach you how to identify them by sight, sound and in flight. Also about their migration, reproduction, diets, population status, environmental & human threats, and their impacts on farmlands. In addition, you’ll learn how to be a “Mindful Birder”.
Find out how to participate in our ongoing swan and geese research projects in collaboration with local and international organizations.
Frame your photos with stunning backdrops of historical barns, clouds, the North Cascades and Mt Baker! And in late March, bright yellow daffodil fields will “Color Your Spirit!”
Note: Don’t let our crisp and wet winter days deter your enthusiasm for joining our Skagit Valley Geese Tour. Much of the birding can be done from the warmth of our vehicle. Nonetheless, warm clothing, gloves, hat and rain gear are highly recommended.
We accommodate all levels of birding and walking abilities.
Interested in looking for more birds? Opt for the 7-hr Skagit Birding Eco Tour. It includes searching for geese, swans, as well as seabirds, sea ducks, shorebirds, raptors, owls and waterfowl around Skagit Valley, nearby bays and the Salish Sea coast.
