There are still spots available to head to the Pacific Northwest this
winter (temperatures in the 50s!) and view many western bird species and
species that breed in the Arctic that go further south during the winter.
Many alcids, gull and waterfowl species, as well as a number of west
coast or northwestern specialties. Birds you might see
include Red-throated loon, White-winged scoter, Black scoter, Surf scoter,
Rhinoceros Auklet, Ancient Murrelet, Wandering Tattler, Chestnut-backed
chickadee, Wrentit, and Hutton's vireo (plus many more). If you are
interested in adding some west coast species to your life list, this is a
good opportunity. Cost is $1,290 per person, $300 single supplement. It
will be a small group, led by an expert guide, Henry Fuller. Registration
will close November 20th, please go to
