Birdwatching at the Willapa

Raymond Airport
Sightings of white-tailed kites, passerines, Northern Harriers and various falcons are common here. The Raymond Airport is located three miles west of Raymond on Highway 105.

North River
West of the airport on SR 105, wintering Willets are often sighted on the mudflats at the mouth of North River. Whimbrels, Long-billed Curlew, and Marbled Godwit are also common.

Tokeland Marina and Bay Center
Marbled Godwit, Long-billed Curlew, Whimbrel and Dowitchers can be seen in these locations in winter and during migration. Year-round the variety of waterfowl, shorebirds and raptors is outstanding.

Washaway Beach
North of Tokeland on SR 105, this stretch of erosion scarred beach has recently been fortified by a man-made jetty. A flock of brown pelicans can often be sighted feeding in the shallow waters of the beach.

Butte Creek Picnic Area
North of Raymond on SR 101, Butte Creek is an excellent example of high quality murrelet habitat. The marbled murrelet can be observed in the pre-dawn hours and are characterized by a high pitched “keer keer” vocalization which sounds like a seabird. About the size of a robin and flying very rapidly, they resemble jet fighter planes in their swiftness..
