Finally getting around to posting some field notes from my recent trip to Squamish. In between great meals at the Howe Sound Brewery, Sara and I explored the estuary around Squamish. I was a little disappointed with the lack of diversity of water birds around the estuary, but perhaps the birding here is better during migration. Despite the disappointing birding around the estuary, I did add a few birds to my year list and I did get my first actually “sight”-ing of a Pacific Wren. We saw 19 species in total over the two days. You can see my full listing of sightings in the KMZ file below, and you can seen all my photos from the trip on Flickr.
