Before the meeting I had to go to today in Everett, we had a little bit of extra time which we spent in Skagit County. My new favorite birding stop here is West 90, where we spent about 20 minutes watching northern harriers, short-eared owls, and a pair of rough-legged hawks flying around in the heavy winds. This is the same spot where I added the owl and hawk to my year list last month, so it's a great place to see these species with regularity.
After Everett we caught another ferry over to the Olympic Peninsula and made our way to Sequim. It was mostly traveling today, but it still turned out to be a pretty respectable day list. Here are the species we saw:
Great blue heron
39 species....not bad! That could be tough to beat tomorrow, but that's my goal!
