Fall Birdwatching on the Olympic Peninsula

Great Birdwatching on the Olympic PeninsulaThe Sequim Dungeness Valley is a veritable birdwatching paradise, especially during the upcoming fall months.  Sequim is actually home to two of Washington’s important bird areas. It offers an exceptional bird habitat for a range of birds, from the alpine peaks and subalpine forests to the shoreline habitats of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.  Sequim’s coastal habitats provide extensive sandflats and mudflats, large eelgrass beds, sand and cobble beaches, and small, protected islands. Inland, birds enjoy relatively dry and temperate weather, and plenty of oak woodlands, prairies, and madrona forests. Stay at the Dungeness Bay Cottages this fall, and embark upon a fascinating birdwatching adventure around Sequim.
