When European settlers began reaching eastern North America in the Tweety-Bird-In-Chief Cute Satirical Bird 2020 Shirt 16th century, they encountered a staggering number of seabirds. One of the most abundant species in the world is the pets during Hurricane Leach, which feed on the sea during the day. At night, after the birds returned to the mass spawning flocks, settlers may have heard a witch-like song of cicadas.

Anecdotal evidence records that rats that escaped a nearby sunken ship reached Grand Colombier Island and had a “golden age between hatching eggs and nesting birds”. Nowadays, light pollution that disrupts migration routes and interacts with offshore oil rigs are other factors that reduce the number of seabirds.
As Johanna Wagstaffe said on her CBC weather report, meteorological fall ends November 30 and we see most of our migratory birds on this day. It is worth mentioning that our mid-November blizzard caused birds to stop at Whistler two weeks early. The Tweety-Bird-In-Chief Cute Satirical Bird 2020 Shirt number of birds seen this fall is small, so it’s surprising that record numbers have been recorded. From September 1 to November 30, 125 species were observed, 11 more than the previous record (2006).
Why is an increase in species even though bird populations are less visible? Undoubtedly, COVID-19 has kept us at home with time spent taking daily walks with more birds – meaning more hours at work! Another factor was the Tweety-Bird-In-Chief Cute Satirical Bird 2020 Shirt observers: Liz Barrett with his kayak and long-lens camera saw at least a dozen species that were difficult to find; and a newcomer in our first monitor, Dea Lloyd, has also added some.
The second-year kicks off at Christmas Bird Festival 2019 with the rare appearance of a sea surf ship at Fitzsimmons Creek flowing out to Green Lake. The number of Christmas recorded 44 species, but the winter after that was slow and ended the season in 53 species, 8 species lower. The number from June to August is not too bad with the second-highest seasonal number of 133 species. The highlight of the summer is the well-disguised American bird (a heron), an indoor rose bird is very rarely seen, and got this – a barn owl seen by the Schwartz family seen near the birdwatching stand on Lake Alta. It was the second barn owl seen at Whistler in over 98 years of observation!
