Birding on the Olympic Peninsula Tour #3


Hy 116
Washington


Description

Watchers View #3: 

  • From View #2 ( map and directions)return to highway and turn right towards Marrowstone Island and head east.  This next 1.1 miles has a couple of turnoffs right next to road that within 50 feet one can be on cobbled beach, usually alone, with some chance of sighting birds and certainly opportunity to enjoy seclusion and view.

Beachcombing here is a pleasant option on the right day with a Sothern exposure.  The last turnoff to right about 1.1 miles down in total is, again, a good spot to pull off and view to the east.  This tidal stream that separates Indian Island from Marrowstone Island often holds birds, American Wigeon, Green-winged Teal, Pintails, and Golden eye are often about, and Brant Geese dabble here.
