NMT - August 2009

August 2009
Species list: 6 / Distance travelled: 141 kilometres

            It was August; this month I strictly focused on shorebirds, though I only got three. Only is the wrong word. I saw two good shorebirds and one amazing shorebird: Long-billed Curlew! I was out in my yard, puttering away when I heard it call; it took a second to register before I tripped and stumbled through our patio doors to grab my bins. I ran back outside to see this big shorebird fly over my house, heading south. My first on Vancouver Island.
