With Sharp-tailed Sandpiper showing up the plan was to get out for a walk to Boundary Bay. I was encouraged by seeing a couple had been sighted in that area today.
As I headed west from 104 St. the tidal pools were quiet with no shorebirds in sight. Then one possible reason became apparent.
This Peregrine Falcon was roosting on a large log washed up along the high water mark. It was surprisingly cooperative for photos and seemed more interested scanning its surrounding than in me. It eventually spotted something and flew off east low along the dyke.
As for shorebirds closer in along the mudflats,
… I only managed to come up with a small group of Dowitchers by the outflow pipe at 88 St.
On the way back I tagged along with the plovers as the tide started to come in, but did not get any real photo opportunities. As for Sharp-tailed, the hunt continues.
