The Tuesday bird walk went to Deep Bay. The morning was cloudy and the winds were calm until near the end of the walk when the winds pickup and the fog moved in. We spotted a Greater Scaup and a Lesser Scaup not far from shore. Ten Long-tailed Ducks were just offshore at the point. The White-winged Scoters were the most numerous of the Scoters although we did see Surf Scoter and Black Scoters on the water. A flock of Dunlin flew by offshore.
Ten birders saw and heard the following forty-six species of birds:
Great Blue Heron
