San Juan Preservation Trust

Birding in the winter is as good a time as any here on the San Juan Islands. Migratory waterfowl move in and take residence on the many lakes, ponds and puddles (which were in ample supply this year with the heavy rainfall we've experienced).

At the beginning of February, Preservation Trust's Kathleen Foley Lewis and Rob Roy McGregor lead members on a walking tour of Zylstra Lake Preserve and enjoyed searching for the many different species of waterfowl and marsh dwellers who utilize this protected ecosystem. One of the highlights was a group of 8 ruddy ducks, the males making an impression with their bright blue bills and upward propped tails, reminding us that nature is cheerful even under a blanket of grey!
