Calling all amateur ornithologists and birdwatchers!

Did you know that the Bainbridge-to-Seattle route on the Washington State Ferries system offers some prime viewing opportunities for birders, and that autumn is one of the best times to do it?

According to a recent post by Joan Carson on the West Sound Home & Garden blog, those with a keen eye are likely to spot cormorants, Barrow’s goldeneye, Bufflehead and Scoters feeding near the Eagle Harbor dock and near the ferry’s churning propellers. Regulars to the Winslow ferry terminal are familiar with the long ramp that leads from the pick-up area to the vessels. Carson advises bird-lovers to take advantage of the ramp’s large windows and high vantage point when looking for birds. Oh, and maybe bring the binoculars!

The article includes a roster of birds to look for at other ferry terminals. To read it for yourself, you can check it out the West Sound Home & Garden blog here.
