Wow! Fantastic work, Zach (and everyone else!)

No kidding! I want that! :lol:

For those of us in the Lower Mainland, you can currently find the elusive Black Scoter off Centennial Beach in Tsawwassen (there are around a dozen near the border).

Hard to get a photo, but here is a heavy crop from yesterday:

You're trying to get us to 300 all by yourself, Zach! Lol. Very nice work! 273+ is a fantastic year!

Hi Devon! Great shot of this Bluetail! It's a nice addition to the collection -- but if it was taken in 2013, it doesn't count towards our "2019 Big Year." However, really like the detail in this photo!
