Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge — Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013

Puget Sound and Islands
Flock of geese
We enjoyed the marvelous 4 mile walk through the Nisqually delta, including the mile long boardwalk over the mud. The refuge is a regional treasure and a wonderful spot for bird watching. The day was hazy, cool, with warm fall colors. Saw some blue herons and spoonbill ducks. Don't miss this great lowland winter walk.
