Some migrate, some stay, some are visitors here for just a season … but where there is water you will always find birds! I believe one of the seabirds here is a Common Goldeneye. Not sure about the other. Both were paddling around just offshore at Seafarers’ Memorial Park on Saturday afternoon. Get out, bring camera and/or binoculars and enjoy!
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.
