Birding Site of the Week
The scattered wetlands of the Chehalis River Valley are great places to listen for various marsh species, including the Sora. Springtime brings an increase in shorebirds, along with migrant passerines. Flycatchers, vireos, and warblers are often seen in the riparian/wetland areas.
