Billy Frank-Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge: Tuesday, June 13. Al Westphal, Leader, email@example.com, 206-780- 7844 (e-mail preferred). A long half-day trip, but there are few places in the region better for observing a great variety of nesting bird species, and they should all be here by mid-June. We will walk the forest and barn trails and as far out on the boardwalk as we care to go. There is a good option for lunch after birding at Norma’s just outside the refuge. Meet at the parking lot by the visitor center at 8:30. a.m.
Al & Andrew Westphal, Leaders: 206-780-7844 or firstname.lastname@example.org (e-mail preferred) to register. An annual favorite. Lots of spring arrivals should be present, especially big numbers and a nice variety of swallows. Maybe a few good warblers too. We encourage families to bring children, 3rd grade and above. Meet 8:30 a.m. at the Theler Wetlands Nature Center. It is on Highway 3 at the 2nd red light, just south of Belfair in Mason County.
