Birds of Winter Swanrise
February 16, 2019 @ 6:30 am - 9:30 am
A Valentine’s Celebration with Skagit Land Trust!
Did you know that swans are monogamous and often mate for life?
Come celebrate these lovebirds with Skagit Land Trust as we venture close to their overnight haven at Barney Lake, and watch as they fly off into the sunrise. In order to catch the fly-over, we are meeting at 6:45 am (early bird gets the worm). Many other birds winter at Barney Lake and bald eagles nest along the shore, so be sure to bring your binoculars!
We will provide some spotting scopes, as well as some hot beverages for the cold morning. Rubber boots are recommended. Parking is difficult onsite, so we will meet at the Skagit Valley Softball Fields parking lot on Martin Road and carpool from there.
