Wayne Pridemore: Birds of the Skagit

Story and photos by Wayne Pridemore

Within weeks the geese and swans of Skagit Valley will begin the long journey to their breeding grounds. Only the birds will know when the time is right to begin the migration north.

The Snow Geese will fly along British Columbia's coastline and then across central Alaska. They will head for the northeast tip of Russia's coast to several different mainland locations between the East Siberian Sea and the Chukchi Sea.

Other geese will split away and fly to Russia's Wrangel Island located in the Arctic Ocean. The migrations north and south will continue as they have in the past.

There is still time to view these marvelous birds near Mount Vernon.
