This is an area where you can usually finds swans in the winter time. I
have found them there on a regular basis over the past 10 years or so.
One year, there were also about 80 elk in that area. with about 20 bulls!
Haven't been there to check on them this year.

I had occasion to be in the Port Angeles/Sequim areas earlier today and
took the opportunity to do a little birding. Besides a few hundred Brant
and several hundred American Widgeon at The Three Crabs, I observed 55
Tundra Swans. The swans were located near the intersection of Port Williams
and Schmuck roads about 2.5 miles NE of downtown Sequim. They were about
150 yards north of Port Williams rd. and 50 yards west of Schmuck. There is
a farm/dirt road parallel to Port Williams Rd. which affords safe viewing.
I have no idea if they frequent this area. The weather was sunny, about 60
with no wind or rain.
