Guided Audubon Bird Walk Saturday at Union Bay Natural Area

The Seattle Audubon Society is having a  birding fieldtrip on Saturday in Laurelhurst's Montlake Fill (Union Bay Natural Area) starting at 8:30am with Sharon Ellard and Jean Olson, leading the three hour trip.

The information says:

We hope to find around 40 avian species in this morning outing. Our list at this time of year should include a variety of water birds, native sparrows, winter migrants, and an unexpected highlight or two.  

Expect to spend about three hours exploring the nooks and crannies of the wetlands and small woodlands the Fill provides. Bring binoculars and dress to stay warm while exposed to the elements. Boots are recommended. Scopes are welcome.  
Since restroom facilities are very limited, stop by the QFC at the University Village on the way to field trip site. Field trip should be over by noon.   
Meet at the parking lot east of Center for Urban Horticulture (near greenhouse area), 3501 NE 41st Street.
Contact information:Sharon Ellard (cell phone number day of trip only: 206-963-4781) and Jean Olson.
