Birding for Beginners

The 2008 season of interpretive programming at Halibut Point State Park kicks off on Sunday, April 13 at 8:00am with Birding for Beginners. Peter Van Demark is again hosting this monthly 2-3hr. moderate stroll along the park’s paths and rocky shore. Halibut Point, a significant viewing location along the North American migratory path, features frequent sightings of pelagic species such as gulls, terns, gannets, purple sandpipers, alcids, shearwaters, loons, jaegers, grebes and more, while in the park’s inland regions quail, towhees, tree swallows and wild turkeys are often spotted. Like all programs at Halibut Point State Park, Birding for Beginners is FREE to the public. Meet Peter in the parking lot. Bring your binoculars!
