The Pilchuck Audubon Society will take flight this month, with a string of weekly field trips bringing bird-watchers -- and their binoculars -- to spots sprinkled throughout the Northwest.
First up is a trip that requires a passport. This Tuesday, birders can head to Point Roberts, on this side of the Canadian border, and Boundary Bay, on the other side, as they try to spy shorebirds, waterfowl and maybe even puffins. For more info, contact Virginia Clark at 360-435-3750.
Then, on Sept. 11, a group will travel to Camano Island, visiting spots like Triangle Cove and Iverson Spit, both prime waterfowl habitat. Again, contact Clark for info.
On Sept. 16, Bellevue Park Rangers will lead a birding canoe trip on Mercer Slough. For info, contact Jonathan Blubaugh at 425-244-7633 or email
On Sept. 18, birders will go to spots including Deception Pass and Campbell Lake as they look for oyster catchers, loons and mergansers. Contact Clark for info.
Finally, on Sept. 25, a group will visit Sequim Bay to bird along the water. Contact Clark for info.
The Pilchuck Audubon Society serves as the local chapter of the National Audubon Society. For more information on its work, visit
