Marbled Murrelet at Maplewood (14/08/10)

I’m currently in the midst of final exams but I really needed a break; or rather, an escape from the sheer boredom that is word for word memorization. I decided to head to my local patch, Maplewood Conservation Area, where I was rewarded with the sight of a juvenile Marbled Murrelet at Otter Point (south west corner of the property). Although this is not really a rare bird for the Vancouver area, it is for Maplewood; the WBT’s checklist lists the species as casual.

The bird was sleeping most of the time and unfortunately I didn’t have my spotting scope or camera with me so you’ll just have to take my word for it that it was there!
