Here are a few more common birds in the estuary and Knight Inlet area. The Merganser, Common Loon and Surf Scooter. The Surf Scooter often arrive in mid September in large numbers. The male’s are quite striking. The cruise the rocky cliffs of Knight Inlet eating large numbers of mussels.
After August 25 our grizzly bear watching tours take place from the viewing stands. The stands are located on the Glendale River, which empties into British Columbia’s Knight Inlet. The salmon have arrived and are in the river and there is lots of wildlife beside the bears. Because of the abundance to salmon for food the grizzly bears often take a “time out” to play. These photos could have the captions: “Leave me alone” and a good right hook “Told you I used to box”.
