Venture onto the teeming waters of Puget Sound in search of numerous sea birds making their way along the Pacific Flyway in Northwest waters.
Aboard the Snow Goose, a spacious 65-foot research vessel, we’ll explore the waters of Bellingham Bay, Lummi Island, Rosario Strait, Chuckanut Bay and surrounding areas in search of harlequin, long-tailed ducks, oystercatchers, murrelets, loons and surf scoters among others.
With more than 50 years observing and photographing birds, Joe Meche will help us identify and share the natural history of the bird species we encounter along the way.
Class will meet at Squalicum Harbor in Bellingham. We’ll begin with introductions and a safety orientation aboard the vessel. With binoculars and field guides in hand, we’ll depart for our day’s adventure in search of all the avifauna we can find.
