New Year’s Day Cruise!  Jan 1 Ferry Field Trip.    Ride the Bremerton-Seattle ferry round-trip and start your 2017 list right!  Join this ABC Club event hosted by Faye McAdams Hands and Diane Yorgason-Quinn for this fun way to jump-start your year.  You don't have to be involved with the ABC Club to join us—all are welcome.

 

Will meet at the Purdy P&R to carpool to Bremerton, park, and walk on the ferry, then ride it right back, counting birds both ways.  Meet at Purdy P&R at 9:30 AM to carpool to Bremerton & park, board the 11:10 AM ferry to Seattle, then the 12:35 PM return trip, back to Purdy by 3 PM.  Each ferry leg takes approximately an hour.  Celebrants will have the choice to stay in Seattle longer and return as desired, assuming their carpool agrees.   Birds seen last year included most wintering waterfowl including Ducks, Alcids, Loons, Grebes, Cormorants, and Gulls.  Expenses include passenger ferry rate from Seattle only (not collected on the Bremerton side) plus parking at Bremerton.  You'll pay to walk on to the ferry on the way back (one-way fees collected on the Seattle side).  Fare is $8.20 (or for over 65, $4.10).
