Englishman River birding

Hi birders,

I had the good fortune to go birding with three birders from Maine on Monday. We went to the mud flats along the Englishman River Estuary in San Pariel, where we saw two Semipalmated Plover and several species of ducks. We then went to the Strait of Georgia off Marine Drive and found Horned Grebes, Red-necked Grebes, a Double-crested Cormorant, California Gulls, Glaucous-winged Gulls, a Pigeon Guillemot and a Marbled Murrelet. The forest area off Mills Road near the Englishman River Estuary produced Northern Flickers, Northwestern Crows, Common Ravens, Chestnut-backed Chickadees, American Robins, Spotted Towhee and close views of a perched Savannah Sparrow, House Finch and American Goldfinch.

We saw and heard the following twenty-eight species of birds:
Canada Goose
American Wigeon
Mallard
Northern Pintail
Green-winged Teal
Hooded Merganser
Common Merganser
Common Loon
Horned Grebe
Red-necked Grebe
Double-crested Cormorant
Great Blue Heron
Semipalmated Plover
California Gull
Glaucous-winged Gull
Pigeon Guillemot
Marbled Murrelet
Northern Flicker
Northwestern Crow
Common Raven
Chestnut-backed Chickadee
American Robin
European Starling
Spotted Towhee
Savannah Sparrow
Song Sparrow
House Finch
American Goldfinch

Good birding
