Hi, All. Hubby and I planning a trip to the San Juan Islands this Fall. We plan to fly into SEA and pick up a rental car and bird our way to Anacortes where we will catch the ferry to Friday Harbor to spend a couple of nights before setting out for the islands with a group kayaking/camping tour. We will kayak and camp among the islands for 5 days before returning to Anacortes. We will take a shuttle back to SEA, so only birding-from-the-bus-window on the way back. I will be watching ebird and have dowloaded a Birding map for the Puget Loop from Washington Audubon website, but hoped someone on this forum may have birded the area and can give suggestions for the most efficient birding spots along our routes. We have the most birding freedom on the drive up since we will have our own transportation and no set schedule. I'm not chasing specific species, just birds in general. ❤️ Although some of those gulls and a Golden-crowned Sparrow would be nice...
Hey guys, This recording was done in WA state (west side) on March 18th 2021. I may be wrong, but I strongly believe this is the sound of a Steller's Jay mimicking another bird. Two questions: Am I right, is it Steller's Jay? If yes, what kind of bird Jay is mimicking? Thank you! You can download MP3 file or listen to it here: what bird_2021-03-19_18-57-34.mp3
