This month Eric Bjorkman will lead Vancouver Audubon痴 field trip to Bottle Beach and other Grays Harbor County hot spots.  High tide at Bottle Beach near Westport, WA will be at 11:49 am, so we値l need to leave Vancouver bright and early to arrive in time for optimal viewing (about two hours before high tide.   If you have a two-way FRS radio, please bring it along so we値l have continuous contact with all vehicles.

We値l be visiting at the peak of shorebird migration and should see many of the usual suspects.   The neat thing about fall migration is that there is a higher likelihood that something unusual will show up while we池e there.  If you plan to join us, please call Eric at (360) 695-3116 to confirm.
                   

                     We will carpool.       Do not forget to pay your driver for gas.
