Fall birds of Admiralty Inlet

Join the Natural History Society to discover the seabirds of Admiralty Inlet on Tuesday morning, October 17.

Preeminent bird biologist and delightful teacher Bob Boekelheide will lead our outing and emphasize the ecology and behavior of the local seabirds we observe.

He will discuss how our location in Port Townsend relates to the birds’ annual cycles, why they’re here, what they’re doing, where they’ve come from, and where they’re going.

We will survey the birds found roosting at Point Hudson and swimming and feeding offshore. We’ll then drive into Fort Worden to check for birds offshore from the Port Townsend Marine Science Center pier. We will end up at Point Wilson, also scoping offshore.

 

Please dress for the weather, bring binoculars and scopes if you have them, a snack and a drink, and a Discovery Pass to park in Fort Worden. RSVP to Ken for location and meeting time at JLTnatural@saveland.org.
