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.

Inland, birds enjoy relatively dry and temperate weather, and plenty of oak woodlands, prairies, and madrona forests.
