Black-necked stilt draws birders to White Rock beach
A feathered friend rarely seen on the Semiahmoo Peninsula brought a flock of birding enthusiasts and photographers to the White Rock waterfront Thursday.
An alert regarding the sighting of a Black-Necked Stilt just east of the white rock hit the Internet around 7 a.m. Oct. 10.
One birder who stopped to ask for directions to the rock told Peace Arch News he'd driven from Coquitlam in the hopes of seeing the stilt firsthand.
The black-and-white shorebird has long, thin red legs and, according to the National Audubon Society website, typically breeds along coasts from Oregon and Delaware southward, wintering along the Pacific Coast north to central California.
