SATURDAY, DECEMBER 21
Weaverling Spit, Fidalgo Bay (Audubon)
8:30 a.m. to before noon
Here's a birding start to the shortest day of the year. Weaverling Spit is a walk and scoping field trip on the western edge of Fidalgo Bay, land owned by the Samish Indian Nation. We have permission to go out and inspect the neighborhood for avifauna, a chance to seek both songbirds in the vegetation and water birds on the bay. To find the area drive parallel to Highway 20 on Fidalgo Bay road, just south of Anacortes and turn off it onto Weaverling Road. Meet at the parking lot at the RV Park which is across the Tommy Thompson Trail and to the right. Dress warmly and seasonally (it's winter after all). Trip will end before noon. Scopes will help with the water birds. There will be some minimal walking on the Spit and Tommy Thompson Trail.
