Birds

The North Olympic Peninsula is part of the Olympic Loop of the Great Washington State Birding Trail. It is known for its wide variety of birds often having the highest number of bird species in the state during the Christmas Bird Count and our May Birdathon. The Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society conducts regular local field trips to the Important Bird Areas (IBA) of the Dungeness Riparian Corridor, Dungeness Bay, Sequim Bay, and Protection Island to view a wide variety of birds in and around the water. Trips are also conducted through wooded areas to view song birds and hear owls in the evening.

Below are links to local birding locations, bird sightings, a bird check list, and CBC and Birdathon count results.
