Birdwatching for the Whole Family!
As you know, all kinds of birds live in our lush state. If you and your family are planning to spend quality time over the weekend or on holidays, there is nothing more interesting than learning about the ways of the environment, especially the birds that coexist all around us.
Check out these accessible places to bird watch as listed by Lynnwood, Washington Tourism’s website.

- Edmonds Marsh. This freshwater wetlands and saltwater marsh has about 200 species of birds. Visiting this location may require bringing the necessary gear and equipment to study them. Bring boots to avoid your shoes or feet from getting wet, soiled or muddied. Binoculars also help you clearly see the birds perched from afar.
- Ferguson Park. Love to hear birds sing? You and your kids may witness songbirds within this area. These birds are abundant in spring time. Along the water’s edge, you may also see a waterfowl if you’re lucky.
- Kayak Point. This park is composed of woods and marine areas where the likes of bald eagles, common loons, and pileated woodpeckers thrive. As an ideal spot for beginning herders, Kayak Point is also safe to access.
- Spencer Island. This isn’t your ordinary island. It’s an island on a river, and one that houses bald eagles and great horned owls — two of the most ferocious species of birds that you can find.
Birdwatching is an educational and fun activity, and Washington is the perfect place to enjoy this unique pastime with family and friends.
