Fifteen birders enjoyed a beautiful day on Hornby on Sunday. First we went to Sandpiper Beach for shorebirds, then to Art and Sue’s cabin for lunch, and then a walk around the Helliwell Provincial Park loop trail. Highlights were many Black Turnstones, a few Black Oystercatchers and a Surfbird at Sandpiper Beach. Nearby a Western Meadowlark was seen.
The following 49 species were seen or heard on Hornby:
