Statistics March 1/12 - As of this date I have seen 74 of the (%) seabirds comprising my list. Whiskered Auklet,Short-tailed Albatross and Trindade Petrels would likely considered by most to be the “rarest and hardest to find” species on a worldwide basis that I have so far seen. As an island in the Pacific Northwest, Vancouver Island has a broad collection of birds and wildlife, both on land and in the sea. Learning to recognize different species can bring us closer to nature and keep us aware of the world we live in.

Pelagics. Seabirds birding worldwide has 6, members. Pelagics all over the world. The main purpose is to promote pelagic birding as a mean to. Discovery Islands Lodge is a friendly B&B style inn, providing affordable waterfront accommodation and kayak tours for adventurous people. Located on remote northern Quadra Island, the lodge is ideally situated close to hiking trails, swimming lakes, and some of BC’s best kayaking. Nearby Surge Narrows Marine Park offers Quadra Island’s most spectacular kayaking; our guided kayak day trips.

The Adventures of an artist/ornithologist on a lonely outcrop in the far South Atlantic. by Parmalee, David F. , pp, ISBN: hardcover; a narrative account of the birds and seals of Bird Island located immediately off the west coast of South Georgia in the southern Atlantic; 13 chapters introduce the natural history and historical records of the island's 30 species of birds and.   To further investigate the status of breeding populations of Pelagic Cormorants in southern British Columbia, we conducted a survey of breeding colonies in the western Queen Charlotte Strait region off northeastern Vancouver Island in and we collated available historical data in this region and neighboring areas to help assess changes in population size over time.
