Featured Activity: Birding in Kirkland Kirkland Birding

You don't have to travel far from Kirkland's downtown to catch a glimpse of some spectacular wildlife. Birders happily enjoy their favorite past time at Juanita Bay Park, a unique urban park where wildlife co-exists peacefully with city dwellers. The Eastside Park Rangers in affiliation with Eastside Audubon offer interpretive tours the first Sunday and third Tuesday of every month. Every season gives nature lovers a chance to spot something new and wonderful.
