We were entertained by very large flocks of Dunlin and Black-bellied Plovers along the shoreline at the start of the walk. Hundreds of Common and Pacific Loons were on the Strait all morning. Many flocks of Brant Geese were seen on the Strait. Several Surf Scoters were seen flying low over the water heading up the Strait. A Pigeon Guillemot was spotted not far from shore. Golden-crowned Kinglets and Ruby-crowned Kinglets were seen just off the trail. A Hutton’s Vireo was heard singing high up in the tall trees along the trail.
