I headed out to Boundary Bay this afternoon for the first time in a long time. My timing was wrong for tides as it was well out and high tide was several hours away. It was just a short walk between 104 St. and the pilings and I was not expecting to find much, but figured there may be a few shorebirds around the tidal pools. As it turned out,
… there was only this lone Red-necked Phalarope.
It was busy foraging for food in a shallow pool close to the dyke.
The Red-necked Phalarope was more than cooperative allowing me to tag along quite close as it worked its way back and forth along the pool.
It even took time out for rest a couple of times. It stayed there until it was flushed by a Northern Harrier flying over the dyke. Having some quality time with this beauty made the afternoon worth it, even if it was the only bird.
