11-12 noon, tried for the Mtn Bluebird at Saanichton Spit posts without luck. the female Northern Harrier flew low along the grass, a Bald Eagle landed in the douglas fir, wren in the grass, 100 wigeons feeding on the water/they left when the eagle arrived, Common Goldeneye on the water, great weather and Mt Baker looked amazing!
