It must be winter! I'll start looking for Harlequins now, too. We sometimes get them in the winter near the Purdy spit, but it's still an occasion when we do!

I don't understand all these people who go south in the winter. That's when a lot of the good birds show up here.

Christmas Bird Count tomorrow.

This afternoon observed male Harlequin Duck foraging close to shore in company with Barrows Golden eyes just east of Silver Cloud Hotel on Ruston way. Photo confirmed.

Also noted small group of red-necked mergansers offshore in vicinity of Pt. Ruston Ferryboat/office.
