Hike Distance?

Start where the Douglas Trail crosses 55th Street NW. Ditch your ride at the park.

Head on foot down 55th Street NW and go under the bridge where the swallows play. Take the right after the bridge to get on the Douglas Trail and head north. Stop and listen for deer trotting through the forest.

You will cross a bridge over 50th Avenue NW. Stop at the metal threshold at the far end of the bridge. Look to your left. On the end of the bridge you will find a small sign. Look for the digit that follows the classic TV telephone prefix. Remember that digit.

Face north again. From where you are start counting the poles on the left as you walk. Watch for kingfishers up on the wire as well as red-winged blackbirds, orioles, robins and other amazing birds.

Just before the pole of the correct number (remember the number on that sign?), look for a tree with two trunks. The kingfisher lives in the fork.
