RBA: SNOWY PLOVER in Campbell River - Sept 8-10th

At 7:30pm on Sept 8-2020, Kyle Fitzpatrick and Morgan Armstrong found a Snowy Plover feeding with Semipalmated Plovers and Killdeer near Shelter Point in Campbell River. The bird was found along the beach by walking 5-10 mins north from the end of Engles Rd where it meets S Island Hwy. The bird was still present when he left at 8:15pm.
