The Tuesday bird walk went to Deep Bay. The morning was cloudy and with rain for the first half of the walk and then turned clear and sunny, making for a pleasant bird walk. Hundreds of Surf Scoters, White-winged Scoters and singing Black Scoters were seen on the Strait of Georgia.  We spotted the first of the season Long-tailed Ducks just offshore.  Three Pigeon Guillimots, seven Ancient Murrelets and four Marbled Murrelets were seen on the Strait during the walk.  We watched a Merlin chasing a flock of crows high above a conifer tree near the trail.  Two Black Turnstones and seven Black Oystercatchers were seen on the gravel bar near the shore.
