Ferry Terminal

As always, be prepared for a wait. To get to Saltspring without going to Vancouver Island, you
have to have reservations - the ferries are fully booked.

Black Oystercatcher Calling Warning The birds were wary when I popped up over the rise in the beach. Nara showed up and the birds panicked.

At Terminal

At Tsawassen terminal, to take the ferry to Victoria (we will then take a ferry to
Pender Island from there). We passed a huge amount of stopped traffic on the road to
the terminal, as apparently the windows ticketing system had crashed (surprise!)

Northern Shoveler I love the huge bill on these guys. You can see the small, comb-like structures on the edge that it uses for filtering food out of the water. I haven't seen that on bird before.
