Port Susan Snow Goose & Birding Festival > Watching Washington Wildlife
Watchable wildlife includes a wide array of state animals, some as common as a familiar bird at a backyard feeder, some briefly passing through on seasonal migrations, some rarely-seen species that provide the dedicated viewer with a reward for hours of patient waiting.
Besides the animals themselves, watchable wildlife describes an increasingly popular pursuit for many residents. Wildlife viewing is a pastime that can be enjoyed in any season, in any corner of the state, by any age group. Unlike some activities, special equipment is not required. Wildlife watchers need to come equipped only with a sense of appreciation for the state's living resources and the knowledge of where to look for them. We hope you will find this site helpful in meeting that need.
There is great information on the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife’s site on different ways and how to Watch Washington’s Wildlife.
Thanks to all of our sponsors who made it possible to offer all of the activities for free – if you get the opportunity, please support them! Click on one of the links below to see easy it is to support the Festival Sponsors.
