Fit & Fun
Here’s an idea — courtesy of the Washington Trails Association (wta.org) — for engaging your kids on walks and hikes: play Winter Bird Bingo!
Start by downloading a game card that shows various species from the WTA website. Then head out and see what you can spot.
WTA suggests a few spots you might want to try:
- School board rebukes Bellevue football program; possible two-year ban for coach Butch Goncharoff
- This drone footage of inside Bertha’s tunnel is like something out of ‘Star Wars’
- Mayor, Chris Hansen denounce misogynistic comments over council arena vote
- How the Seahawks got two first-round picks in the NFL draft
- Five veteran Seahawks whose roles could be most impacted by additions from the NFL draft

Big Ditch Slough, Skagit Wildlife Area just south of Mount Vernon: Walk along the dike. You can also hop in the car and pair this hike with the flat 2-mile loop at the Skagit Wildlife Area just out of Conway.
Padilla Bay, Mount Vernon: It’s flat and traverses sloughs, tidal flats and salt marshes.
Dungeness Spit trail, Sequim: The trail gains some elevation and traverses through woods. Costs $3 a family.
Don’t forget local parks, which often host easy-to-spot birds like black-capped chickadees. Blue herons sometimes appear at the Ballard Locks.
