Saturday September 19
We'll meet at Portage Bridge Park, the first right after crossing the bridge to Indian Island. There will be stops along Indian Island isthmus mud flats looking for shore birds and a stop at Mystery Bay before heading to Fort Flagler RV campground at the end of Campground Road. We will walk the spit scoping Port Townsend Bay and Kilisut Harbor for fall migrating ducks, grebes and shorebirds. We'll scope Rat Island looking for nesting Caspian terns and gulls. Be prepared for cool wet weather with gloves, hats, layers of clothing, binoculars, spotting scope, and raingear. Anyone wanting to carpool from Port Townsend should meet at the Park and Ride across the street from Safeway by 8:30 am. I'll meet everyone at the Indian Island Portage Park.
