Surf scoters by the Thousands!!!

John Purves and I saw a huge raft of many thousands of Surf Scoters along with Greater Scaup, Long-tailed Ducks, Barrow’s and Common Goldeneye, Mallards, American Widgeon, lessor Scaup, a Eurasian Widgeon, Bonaparte's Gulls, a few Black Scoters, Harlequin Ducks and Mew, California Gulls. These birds were seen between French Creek and Parksville Bay today at about 2:00 P.M.
