Salmon Arm Birding Oct. 25, 2021

I was able to get over to Salmon Arm today and join Roger and Doug for a walk around the bay. The main target was the group of 5 American Golden Plovers that had been there for a week or more now. We were able to locate them after some looking, another world life bird.
