The Vashon Christmas Bird Count is Sunday January 4. If you like counting
aquatic birds in a variety of habitats, this is the count for you. Count
from the shore, from the ferry, from a private boat, from your own kayak in
this rich island habitat in Puget Sound. The count circle covers all of
Vashon-Maury Island and also area in North Pierce County and South Kitsap
County along Colvos Passage, part of Blake Island and Three Tree Point in
the Burien area. How many count circles have a bit of three counties?
Every year we see some good birds such as last year's Yellow-billed Loon. I
just received a report of one near Pt. Robinson this afternoon just north of
where the Northern Wheatear was seen last month.
I'll be the coordinator again this year. If you would like to join one of
the groups hitting Vashon's hot spots contact me so that I can connect you
in with the appropriate team leader.
