Stanwood’s and Camano Island’s mild weather and central location within Washington’s beautiful Puget Sound makes it an attractive year-round destination for people and wildlife. Winter residents include Great Blue Heron, Eagles, Hawks, and countless shorebirds. Many different species of duck can be seen from a single vantage point on the island.

In the fall and early winter months, Snow Geese winter in the bays. Bald Eagles have a strong presence on Camano as well.

Open fields, wetlands, and miles of scenic coastline encourage a diverse bird and wildlife population, no matter what time of year you visit! The 12 parks on Camano Island offer many locations from which to watch a very wide variety of birds, local and migrating.

After an exciting day of birding, relax and unwind at a charming local B&B, inn, or cabin. If you are lucky, the birds may be seen from there as well!

Discover Pass:

If you are planning on experiencing one of the "Self Guided Tours" please know that the majority (if not all) of the local birding areas require a valid Discover Pass. The Discover Pass allows you to enjoy millions of acres of Washington state-managed recreation lands – including state parks, water-access points, heritage sites, wildlife and natural areas, trails and trailheads.
