Birdwatchers on the edge

Published February 11, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Thanks to these gents, I had the opportunity Saturday to see oyster catchers and other shoreline birds through the lens of a spotting scope. Pictured here at Rosario Head are Bob Kuntz, Gary Bletsch and Mike Nelson, two from Mount Vernon and one from upriver. The sun has the power to draw. I saw another group of birdwatchers on the trail down.

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.
