BC Uncommon Chicken Alert: RBA: PARAKEET AUKLETS and MANX SHEARWATER off Tofino

At 10:00am on April 10-2022 on a pelagic with Ocean Outfitters on the Miss B Haven, Mike Toochin et al. spotted 5 Parakeet Auklets near Clayoquot Canyon. One bird was photographed and viewed well by all on board.

The birds were seen HERE

This is the 47th record for BC.

At 1 pm on April 10-2022, Ilya Povalyaev spotted a Manx Shearwater off the same boat. This sighting was surprisingly far off shore for this species. It was viewed by half on board as the bird did one quick flyby and didn’t allow for photos.

The bird was seen HERE

This is the 69th record for BC.
