On our waterfronts, you'll find large concentrations of loons, ducks, herons and shorebirds. In higher elevations, like Green Mountain, there are neo-tropicals that migrate from Mexico. These include tanagers, gross beaks, swallows, hummingbirds and warblers. Kitsap also has a growing population of Bald Eagles that make this their home year round.  It is not unusual to spot them soaring overhead throughout the Kitsap Peninsula.

One of their favorite roosts is the mast of the USS Turner Joy in Bremerton and in the tall evergreen trees the Manette community, and throughout the Kitsap Peninsula.

Kitsap Audubon Society - the site includes their list of "Where to Bird".

Audubon Washington State - Check out the new Great Washington State Birding Trail map featuring locations in Port Orchard, Bremerton, Silverdale, Poulsbo, Hansville and Bainbridge Island.

Ask the Bird Lady: If you need help with identification, or have questions about birds you see on Kitsap, ask Joan Carson, the Bird Lady. Also, let Joan know what birds you see while here - you never know when something special might show up!
