Bird of the Week
Snow Geese are descending by the tens of thousands to winter in the Skagit Valley. This entire population breeds on the tundra of Wrangel Island in eastern Siberia.
Birding Site of the Week
The 585 acres of varied habitat at Discovery Park offer great birding opportunities year-round. In winter, scan the blackberry brambles around the south parking lot for wintering Golden-crowned, White-crowned, Song, and Fox Sparrows. Feel like a long walk? Make your way down to the lighthouse to scan for wintering seabirds on Puget Sound.
