Event Details

Go on a bird walk in Downtown Olympia! Join the Estuarium for a walk around downtown looking for the various birds that call the Puget Sound home!

We will walk to Heritage Park and the 5th Avenue Dam, stopping along the way to observe how birds have adapted to live in urban areas. Stroll along Capital Lake to listen for the unique calls of Killdeer and watch the feeding behaviors of dabbling Mallards versus diving Buffleheads. Keep an eye in the sky at the 5th Avenue Dam for soaring Osprey or under the 4th Avenue Bridge for roosting Pigeons. Have your binoculars ready for the boardwalk as we look for Belted Kingfisher and Great Blue Herons hunting along West Bay. Before heading back, we will stop at Percival landing to talk about how Olympia’s estuaries have changed and the effect it has had on bird populations.

No birding experience required! The walk will be 2 hours and cover approximately 2 miles, so don’t forget your comfy walking shoes. Please bring your own binoculars; however, we do have a few to spare. The Bird Walk tour also includes a tour of our Estuarium facility.

The Estuarium’s Bird Walk tours are a recurring event that will take place every other 4th Sunday of the month from 9am to 11am. Next one is Sunday, October 23rd.
