Audubon Society spring fling
For birds of a feather that flock together, there’s no season like spring. Ditto for the fans of our fine-feathered friends. And, in the spirit of spring, here’s a sojourn guaranteed to make your spirit soar.
In conjunction with the first-ever Orcas Island Bird and Wildlife Festival, April 10-12, the San Juan Audubon Society is sponsoring a field trip to the Emerald Isle, Saturday, April 12 (meet at the Friday Harbor ferry landing at 7:30 a.m.).
Birders of all stripes and experience are welcome. Space is limited, as carpooling will be mode of transportation of the day; reserve a spot by calling the Audubon Society’s Barb Jensen, 378-3068.
Spring is an ideal time to look for lingering seabirds, swans and ducks, and for arriving warblers and a long list of songbirds, Jensen says. Field trip participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, a favorite birding book and a lunch, and to dress for the weather.
