Woodchuck beside the harbour

Our friend Bill and I came upon a Woodchuck at the mouth of its burrow in an alder thicket beside Peninsula Harbour.
We found a good mix of waterfowl in and near the harbour, most notably Canada Goose, Mallard, American Wigeon, Northern Shoveler, Blue-winged Teal, Green Winged Teal, Ring-necked Duck, Common Goldeneye, Bufflehead & Red-breasted Merganser.

Warblers were scarce and scattered - Yellow-rumped remain the most numerous. We also saw a few Palm Warblers and a single Orange-crowned Warbler.
