Alberta, British Columbia, Washington State – October 2011

October 16-19, 2011 – Calgary, AB to Okanogan, B.C to Westport, Washington to Calgary, AB. 


Goals: Good times. White-headed Woodpecker (dip), Bar-tailed Godwit (score), Black-tailed Gull (score).

After attending the Canadian Migration Monitoring Network meeting in Penticton, British Columbia, brother Attia and Mackenzie headed south west to Washington State on a quest for White-headed Woodpecker. While that search was futile, the adventure was thrilling and the habitat was gorgeous. A coastal jaunt provided identifiable looks at a Bar-tailed Godwit and a trip to Westport Washington provided good looks at a Black-tailed Gull after an intensive search. The coffee was superb.



Bikini Barista – Westport, Washington. Yes, it’s a coffee shop.
