Did you know that the Cascade Loop is home to 225 of the 346 recorded bird species in our state? 

According to the Washington State Audubon Society, "Hundreds of thousands of shorebirds, neotropical migrants, and other birds of the Pacific Flyway depend on Washington's wealth of natural habitats: some stop here to rest and eat before continuing north, while others stay to nest and raise the next generation. Northwest Washington is famous in winter for its large populations of seabirds, Bald Eagles, Snow Geese, and Trumpeter and Tundra Swans, and offers some of the country's best raptor viewing." 

Grab your Washington State Audubon Cascade Loop Birding Map, binoculars and walking shoes and head out for some truly epic birding!
