Early winter is prime season for eagle watching in the Pacific Northwest. With a number of prime viewing locations located right in Skagit and Whatcom counties. The Skagit River Bald Eagle Interpretive Center is an amazing resource for planning your next adventure.
The flats and fields around the rural Skagit County towns of Edison, Bow and Bay View are good for raptors in general. Take an afternoon and meander the back roads surrounding Farm to Market and Bay View-Edison roads.
