Birds of Camano Island

by Joe Meche

The moderate climate of the Pacific Northwest and its location in Puget Sound make Camano Island an ideal destination for birds and for the people who enjoy watching them. The diversity of habitat types includes fields and forests, wetlands and tidelands which attract an equal diversity of resident and migratory bird species.  There are numerous locations from which to observe all of the birds that are common on the island and in the surrounding waters. 

Joe Meche, writer/photographer and past president of the North Cascades Audubon Society in Bellingham, will take us on a virtual tour of the island, focusing on its natural beauty and some of the birds that can be found here during different times of the year.  Joe has been watching birds for more than 60 years and captures their beauty on film and video tape to share with others. His monthly column, Beaks and Bills, has been a staple for a Bellingham paper for over 12 years.
