Birding Site of the Week
No other place in Washington feels more like the Canadian Rockies than Salmo Mountain in the extreme northeastern corner of the state. The Engelmann spruce and subalpine fir forest offers opportunities to find Spruce Grouse, American Three-toed Woodpeckers, and Boreal Chickadees. Salmo Mountain may be the best spot in the state to find Boreal Owls and White-winged Crossbills.
