Rankin has been busy with many birds.Mostly Dunlins & Black-Bellied Plovers.
These Black Turnstones were having a nap. Birds will twist around & put their beak in their feathers.The air in their would be warmer to breath in.
Rankin rocks also had other residents resting on it! I believe they are Dunlins,Black Turnstones & a few Black Bellied Plovers.
I was disappointed today.I couldn’t find one of my eagle friends about! They have all flown the coup for the salmon streams.I’d love to know which streams exactly?
Streams further north spawn sooner & streams further south spawn later.Alaska starts early Summer,while streams down in Washington/Oregon start in October.
Didn’t find any of my bear friends out either,but it was near high tide so I wasn’t too surprised about that.I usually find at least one out & about,but not tonight.
Decided to take a tour around Meares island.Meares is a large local island.It has 60 miles of shore line & 22000 acres of original growth.
Nice trip but not much for wildlife tonight.
Came across this guy down on Schooner Beach.Their are thousands of birds migrating through the Tofino area right now.
