San Juan Island, Washington

I've got a vacation trip coming up later this month on San Juan Island, Washington. I would greatly appreciate any advice folks could give me on what to expect up there, or any good sources of field guides, etc. local to the area. As a side note, I'll be bringing along my brand spankin' new Bigma with me, so I'm particularly interested in photographic opportunities.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or advice.

Might be too late but both "The Birder's Guide to Washington" and "Birding in the San Juans" would be most useful.

You should be able to find these in Seattle if your coming through (say the University Bookstore in the U-District or perhaps even at the downtown branch or even the Half Price Books on Capitol Hill or Downtown).

See also Seattle Audobon web site with some info (but not much)

Have fun!

Good birding guide available

The author of Birding in the San Juan Islands is available for leading tours and has been highly recommended to me. Here is the website link for info on the guide service:

Good luck
