Expect a colorful fall morning and easy strolling on the Snoqualmie Trail as Eastside Audubon hosts a child-friendly birding walk in Duvall on October 20.
Woods and marshes along the trail are home to big and colorful birds that children love to see: flashy red-breasted sapsuckers, sharp blue Steller’s jays, giant great blue herons and soaring red-tailed hawks. Winter ducks should be arriving in their bright plumage.
Leading the walk will be Mike West, a popular instructor whose classes for beginning birders are perennial sellouts.
The walk is from 10 a.m. until noon on Saturday, October 20. It starts at the parking lot for McCormick Park in Duvall, located at 26200 NE Stephens Street.
Everyone is welcome, and there is no fee. Families can easily leave the walk at any time.
Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. Bring binoculars if you have them, as well as water and any snacks you need.
