Tranquille Kamloops Birding March 25, 2022

A great mid-morning at Tranquille yesterday. A huge thanks to Isaac for finding the Dunlin there! The other highlight was the single male Red-breasted Merganser mixed in with the Common mergansers out of Kamloops Lake. Red-breasted Merganser is nearly annual at this site but quite scarce.
