More BC birds

Bummed off the conference mid-afternoon under gentle arm-twisting from a couple of colleagues, and went whale watching. Plenty of Orca although it’s quite early in the season ….. also many, many Bald Eagles (why didn’t I bring the good camera?) as well as Western Gulls, assorted Cormorants (Pelagic and Double-crowned), Glaucous-winged Gulls, Bank Swallows and Surf Scoter. Coming back into the harbour at Steveston there is a long, low sandy and grassy bank covered in huge groups of Great Blue Herons.

Tomorrow, it’s back to Montreal and normal birds.
