Cortes Island Bird Counts

Each year, as part of the Public Education Program, the Cortes Island Museum sponsors two birding events – the Christmas Bird Count and a Spring Migration Birding Day.
No experience is necessary to join these events.

Everyone welcome!
Grab binoculars, pack your lunch and join the Museum’s Spring Birding Event – Saturday, May 4, 2019. It’s fun and an opportunity to learn about the birds that live and visit our island.
