Eared Grebes in Boundary Bay

Yesterday we took the boat into Boundary Bay south of Vancouver to look for gray whales. None were seen but we did see about 20 eared grebes near the Canada US border. Each spring, eared grebes migrate through the Gulf Islands but I was not aware that they visited Boundary Bay too. You might be able to see them through a telescope on the high points of land on Point Roberts but most were far out to sea. There is also several hundred long-tailed ducks and surf scoters in the bay.
