July-August 2017 Admiralty Audubon Field Trips

Important: Please pre-register by contacting field trip leader before trip so we can contact you about changes. Everyone is welcome, including non-members and beginners.


Friday, July 14

Meet at the very first entrance at 9:00 am. Bring rain coat just in case, wear boots or sturdy shoes and bring your water and snack. We will go around the lake on the outer trail and plan on 2 to 3 hours. Bring binoculars. I have spotted a Nuthatch nest and Red-breasted Sapsucker nest right off the trail and hopefully they will have not have fledged yet. I would like to limit the group size for up to 6. We can also carpool from my house as it is near SR 20. If you’re driving, don’t forget your Discover Pass! Contact Trip Leader Beverly McNeil if you plan to join us 360-385-9730 or

Resume in the fall.



Some Birding Field Trip Leaders have agreed to lead trips around the area as part of their normal birding activities and would enjoy company without spending energy on announcing and coordinating trips. If you are interested, check our home page for the latest offerings. These will be great opportunities for less experienced birders to improve their skills and everyone to learn about new locations.

Please bring binoculars and scopes (if you have any) and wear appropriate footwear and clothing. Heavy rain will cancel most trips but light rain will not; check with the leader when in doubt. Do not bring pets.

Cautionary Note – All persons participating in field trips assume all risks of whatsoever nature or kind and neither AAS nor the trip leaders accepts any responsibility for the actions of any persons who freely participate.

Note: A short description of birds seen should be posted under "Sightings" on this website the following day (see link on banner above).
