Brandt's Cormorants and Grebes from False Creek - October 15 2011

Posted by birder on Friday, November 4, 2011
I was in my friends boat and we came across some neat birds in the False Creek walkway and off of Stanley Park.

First was these 2 Pelagic Cormorants, a juvenile and an adult:

Next after the cormorants was this single Red-necked Grebe:

After the grebe a flock of Surf Scoters flew by:

After the scoters was when I came across the Brandt's Cormorants. They were resting around 1 kilometer off of Stanley Park.

On the way back, I saw this Horned Grebe:

The last interesting bird I came across was what I think is a Red-necked Grebe, but I also think it could be a Western Grebe.
