Three Twitchers*

For the fourth year in a row, I had the pleasure of participating in Gabriola's annual bird count which took place yesterday. My teammates and I covered The Commons and the Dogwood Crescent area. Can't speak for the others but the highlight for me was the moment that a pair of trumpeter swans flew directly over us heading south, probably for Coats Marsh.

*Twitcher: a sometimes misapplied synonym for birder or ornithologist
