Puget Sound Shorebird Count

We are delighted to announce that we will be conducting the annual Puget Sound Shorebird Count in late November/early December 2021! Every winter, shorebirds migrate south to warmer climates in one of the most beautiful wildlife shows in the Pacific Northwest. In conjunction with Point Blue, we will again be monitoring these wintering populations in Puget Sound with community scientists and biologists at 23 sites, including Samish, Padilla, Fidalgo and Port Susan Bays.
