The Tuesday bird walk went to Deep Bay. The morning was windy with lots of rain. The surf was up and pounding on the shore--it was a winter storm in the making for sure! The highlights of the morning included a large number of Long-tailed Ducks just off the Point and a large mixed flock of Black Turnstones and Dunlin just along the shoreline.

Five hardy, cold, wet birders saw and heard the following thirty-six species of birds:
Canada Goose, Mute Swan, Trumpeter Swan, American Wigeon, Mallard, Harlequin Duck,
Surf Scoter, White-winged Scoter, Black Scoter, Long-tailed Duck, Bufflehead, Common Goldeneye, Common Merganser, Red-breasted Merganser, Pacific Loon, Common Loon,
Horned Grebe, Red-necked Grebe, Double-crested Cormorant, Pelagic Cormorant, Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagle, Black Oystercatcher, Black Turnstone, Dunlin, Mew Gull, Glaucous-winged Gull, Rock Pigeon, Northwestern Crow, Common Raven, American Robin, Varied Thrush,
European Starling, Spotted Towhee and White-crowned Sparrow.

Anything or any event that gets local people outside and learning about nature first hand is a win\win for all levels of society. I push environmentally friendly products and techniques in my business because I do appreciate what we have out here... http://SaskwatBlog.blogSpot.com
