Birds of Vashon Island—images and songs

See photos of local birds and hear their songs!

About this video
Every year, we ask people to submit photos for our Birds of Vashon-Maury Island calendar. We get hundreds of submissions, some from children as young as 7, others from photographers with decades of experience. With so many wonderful images—more than a calendar can hold—we decided to share some of them here. By coupling many of the birds with recordings of their songs and calls, this delightful video can help you identify Island birds by sight and sound.

All of these photos were taken on or around Vashon-Maury Island by local photographers. We thank them for sharing their beautiful photos with our community!

This video includes several corrections made July 5, 2020.
