        Every year thousands of people visit the Upper Skagit River Valley in northwestern Washington State to watch one of the largest wintering Bald Eagle populations in the continental United States. Up to 350 bald eagles are counted annually. While eagles can be seen as early as November, or as late as March, the best viewing is during the months of January and early February, when eagles perch in trees along the riverbank, or dine on salmon carcasses on the banks and gravel bars.

 The wildlife on and around San Juan Island is extraordinary! During a bicycle ride or drive around the island and you are bound to spot a Black Tailed Deer, a red fox, or perhaps even a wild turkey.
    The San Juans are accessible to the public by water and air. The most common means of travel is by Washington State Ferry.
  Birding on San Juan Island is incredible. There are hundreds of species of birds that call the San Juans home. The types of birds vary from seabirds, migrating marine birds, shorebirds and birds of prey. Some types of birds that you can spot are: great blue herons, oyster catchers, trumpeter swans, peregrine falcons, ospreys, and of course bald eagles.
