Living in Anacortes and Skagit County isn’t just about the house you buy, but also the amazing community and why we choose to live here. One of those reasons is Birds of Winter.
Life in Anacortes and the Skagit Valley has its perks, including being one of the prime destinations for bird watching. The landscape and weather of the Skagit Valley is the perfect habitat for hundreds of various in the winter. Bird varieties that call Skagit home over the winter include trumpeter swans, snow geese, bald eagles and peregrine falcons and more.
One of the best ways to enjoy birding if you’re a first timer is with a tour. Guided bird tours of the Skagit Valley are both an educational way to learn more about the birds that call the Skagit Valley home, as well as learn the area. This is ideal for our residents that have recently moved to the Anacortes area and may not know the ins and outs of Skagit County.
Did you know that Skagit County is one of the best places to see eagles in the winter months? They congregate in high numbers and make for a fun outing. Skagit Guided Adventures recently saw 198 on a tour!
And, Fidalgo Island itself has many spots that are excellent for birding if you want to take yourself on a tour.
