Ancient Murrelets- New NA Record

As part of today’s Sunshine Coast Christmas bird count, the Roberts Creek party lead by Russ Tkatchuk recorded more than 21,000 Ancient Murrelets, which is a new north American record.  The birds were seen from the Roberts Creek Pier over 75 minutes. All were flying south down the Strait of Georgia.

More details will be posted to the Sunshine Coast page as they are written up along with other CBC highlights (including a Tufted Puffin).
