I went out with local birders on Saturday January27 to do the monthly shorebird count. One of the many atmospheric rivers sweeping in from the Pacific Ocean meant heavy rain, fog and some wind. It certainly didn’t stop the birds nor the birders.
There were at least 60 probably more common mergansers both at Wahtl Creek and further out from MK Bay Marina.
