Here is a chance to explore some birding hotspots in Lewis County near Centralia, an area that generally our field trips neglect.  We'll travel to Goodrich Rd, Borst Park, Airport Rd, Hillburger Pond and Alexander Park to find waterfowl and winter forest birds. Meet at the Centralia Safeway, 1129 Harrison in Centralia at 8am to carpool.  Bring some small bills to reimburse the driver. Dress warmly and for the weather - it's January - and bring binoculars and a sack lunch.  Contact Kathleen Snyder at 360-915-9731 or 425-971-8021(cell)  to sign up.

Port Angeles and the Strait of Juan de Fuca

March 16-March 17

This is an overnight trip leaving Olympia Saturday, March 16 and returning Sunday, March 17, with Saturday night in Port Angeles. The focus is on seabirds at several locations on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The trip is especially suitable for beginning and intermediate birders, but is open to birders of all skill levels who would enjoy seeing birds, beaches, and the rocky shores of the Olympic Peninsula in the early spring in the company of others. We may make an initial stop on Hood Canal—perhaps near Brinnon—then head for points on Sequim Bay, the Three Crabs area, the Dungeness NWR on Dungeness Spit, and then on to Port Angeles for dinner together and to stay overnight. Sunday morning we plan to bird on Ediz Hook next to Port Angeles, followed by Salt Creek County Park (about 15 miles west of Port Angeles), where we will look for Harlequin Ducks, Black Turnstones, and Black Oystercatchers among the waves crashing onto rocky headlands. If time permits and there is interest, we can stop by the beautiful Elwha Valley before returning to Olympia by 5 p.m. or before. There will be short walks up to half a mile or a mile during the trip. If possible, please register by March 4. E-mail Sam Merrill at sammerrill3@comcast.net to register. There is a limit of 12 people for this trip. Carpooling may be arranged. We will meet at the Fire Station at 125 Delphi Rd just north of its intersection with Mud Bay Rd at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 16. Bring binoculars, a scope to share if you have one, and warm clothes as shore locations can be windy. Bring any other supplies or accessories you need to be comfortable. Please make your own lodging plans in Port Angeles. There are many…
