the bird looks a little surprised to be there himself!
just checked the Preliminary results for our Christmas bird count Dec 16_2017, the area extending from Albert Head to Saanichton and all of Greater Victoria-not one Surfbird found! (previous years had to a high of 67). You must have the only one on the Island. great shots and nice find Garry.

I was at Neck Point, in Nanaimo this afternoon, and there was a flock of
2 - 3 dozen there.
