The scenery can be mind blowing with the high Olympics and snow-capped peaks of the Northern Cascades in full view.

On the first day we will work our way north from Portland to Port Angeles, our base of for this trip. We will make stops along the Hood Canal to look for Barrow's Goldeneye and Harlequin Duck and at Point Wilson in Port Townsend for loons and alcids.

A day trip to Neah Bay to look for rarities is an absolute must! An amazing variety of eastern vagrants has shown up here in the last few years. This area was recently discovered as the major vagrant trap where Tropical Kingbirds show up annually.

We will also explore the Sequim area for a day to find Long-tailed Duck, Marbled and maybe Ancient Murrelets. Yellow-billed Loon is rare, but we will certainly investigate every loon we come across.
