Big Ditch Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Don’t be put off by the name. A walk along a dike near the southeast shore of Skagit Bay and inside the Skagit Wildlife Recreation Area provides families with wide views of birds and saltwater marshes.

Except during hunting season (October through January), this is a wondrous place to see eagles, ducks, trumpeter and tundra swans, snow geese, dunlins, red-winged blackbirds, kestrels, and peregrine falcons. Children will have a hard time understanding why some of the time the birds are provided refuge here, and some of the time they are hunted. Once I saw a snowy owl perched here on nearby driftwood, doing his own hunting."
