Bird-watching events to mark international event

Friends of Semiahmoo Bay Society will host two bird-watching events May 10 to mark International Migratory Bird Day.

The first gets underway at 8 a.m. at the Little Campbell forest trail, where guides will lead participants in a search for migrating warblers – from Central and South America – that have stopped to rest and feed as they fly north. Thrush, swallowe and woodpeckers are among other winged wonders likely to be spotted.

Those interested are asked to meet at the Little Campbell Hatchery, at 1284 184 St.

The 10 a.m. walk is to take place at Blackie Spit in Crescent Beach. There, birders will look for migrating shorebirds.

Boundary Bay is a major stopover for 50 different bird species, numbering in the hundreds of thousands.

To participate, meet at the kiosk at the entrance gate to Blackie Spit.
