How Photographing Raptors Changed My Life

La Conner based photographer Nancy Crowell gave a presentation via Zoom to Skagit Audubon on November 10 at 7:00 PM Pacific Time. The program is a description of how she came to a bird photographer and her approach to shooting images that will engage and inspire people to care more about birds.

Saturday January 25th - La Conner Birding Showcase!

You know winter is almost here when the farm fields surrounding La Conner turn white - with Snow Geese and Trumpeter Swans. The birds annually migrate southward by the tens of thousands from nesting grounds in Siberia and Alaska. The Skagit Valley is one of their major wintering grounds, with more than 50,000 birds typically stopping over between as early as October and the La Conner Daffodil Festival in March. 

La Conner Birding Showcase 2019!

Join us for the 2nd annual La Conner Birding Showcase during the Skagit Valley Birds of Winter Experience!  Educational vendors and artists will be on display from 9:30am - 3pm.  We are excited to announce our keynote speaker, Dr. Kaeli Swift.

The Joys and Perils of Bird Photography

What do you need for bird photography? Primarily, patience. While birds won’t complain that their portrait makes them look fat, they also won’t hang around and wait for you to get the lighting just right.

The Amazing Birds Of Winter Experience

Skagit Valley and La Conner offer an authentic experience in many ways but nothing is perhaps more magical than the annual migration of birds into this inviting part of Washington State. In honor of these birds, we welcome you to the first La Conner Birding Showcase as part of the Birds of Winter Experience!
