Neah Bay: Birding at the Beginning of the World
Monday, April 16 through Tuesday, April 17, 2018
Starting time: Both Monday and Tuesday we start with breakfast in Neah Bay at 7am, then meet after breakfast at 8 am at Washburn’s Store to start birding. This year you have an option to join Bob Boekelheide to begin birding on the way out to Neah Bay. To do so, meet Bob on Sunday, April 15, at Clallam Bay County Park in the town of Clallam Bay at 2:30 pm.
Price: $650 per person double occupancy; $750 single occupant.
Join Denny Van Horn, Bob Boekelheide, and Stacey Fradkin for a unique, two-day birding experience to one of the most remote and wild birding areas of Washington State. We will explore the Makah Indian Nation’s best and most beautiful birding hot spots, and, if the weather permits, go on a 6-8 hour offshore boat trip on the M/V Windsong to view pelagic sea birds and marine mammals. Even if weather precludes going offshore, we will still fill the entire trip with birding, searching for migrating raptors, seabirds, and songbirds. Considering the distance to Neah Bay, we have arranged for two-nights lodging at beautiful Hobuck Beach as part of the package, starting on Sunday night before the first day of birding, then on Monday night during the trip. Costs include Makah tribal passes, Sunday and Monday nights lodging, Monday and Tuesday breakfasts and lunches, buffet dinner on Monday evening, along with birding/boating. Our trip finishes late Tuesday afternoon. Limit 20 people.
