Audubon Society Field Trip Saturday To Union Bay Natural Area

The Seattle Audubon Society is having a  birding fieldtrip on Saturday to Laurelhurst's Montlake Fill, also knows as the Union Bay Natural Area.

The information says:
All are welcome on this trip to an urban oasis.  We will focus on using not only sight but also sound to identify and observe as many bird species as possible; should be at least 40!   
At this time of the year the Fill offers wintering water- and songbirds, raptors, and often produces a nice surprise as well, including the possibility of the earliest spring migrants!   
Expect to walk up to 3 leisurely paced miles on level but very muddy ground.  Bring binoculars and dress to stay warm and dry while being exposed to the wintry elements.   
Please note that facilities will likely not be available on-site, but you can first stop by the QFC at nearby University Village.  Scopes welcome if you’re willing to carry it (leader will have one).  Over by noon.
The leader is Evan Houston (field trip day only 206-327-5352. Meet at 7:30am at the Center for Urban Horticulture east parking log by the Douglas building and greenhouse.
