Shannon Point songbirds

Published April 12, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

What a beautiful morning, not only for shoreline sights – but for a “concert” presented by songbirds at the perimeter of the parking lot at Ship Harbor’s state ferry terminal. In addition to the birds shown here, I saw Canada Geese, a hummingbird and redwing blackbirds. I hope to visit the wetlands area someday from the Shannon Point Marine Center owned and operated by Western Washington University.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
