RBA: SNOWY PLOVER in Tofino - May 10th

At 8 am on May 10-2021, Ian Cruickshank found a Snowy Plover on the upper part of Comber's Beach. The bird was 100 m east of the Sandhill Creek mouth. A Snowy Plover was also reported but not photographed from the same location on May 7th by Yuri Zharikov which may or may not be the same bird.

This is the 32nd record for BC.
