Join Libby Mills — a long-time Skagit resident locally renowned for her natural history knowledge, birding and guiding skills and artwork too — for a field excursion designed to celebrate one of the Northwest’s natural treasures.
Traveling together, we’ll survey the area’s profound bird life, with a focus on raptors, wintering waterfowl and shorebirds, as well as the relationships that bring these various species together in this particular place. We’ll go where the action is, which in the past has included the picturesque Edison-Bow, La Conner and Padilla Bay areas.
By the end of the day, you’ll have gained strategies for identifying local birds so you can continue to explore the Skagit’s wild bounty on your own and with family and friends.
