Anna's Hummingbird, Ralph Hocken Photo.
The Tuesday bird walk went to the Englishman River Estuary, Plummer road side. The morning was sunny but quite cool with a stiff breeze off the Strait of Georgia. The highlights included seeing three Anna's Hummingbirds perched on a bush along the trail at the first of the walk. We saw twelve Gadwall feeding just off the mudflats and a large raft of Pacific Loons on the Strait of Georgia.
Fifteen birders saw and heard the following fifty species of birds
