Author: Clarkson, P.; Bruhwiler, F.; Hunter, T.
Cleland Island is British Columbia’s first Ecological Reserve and one of the largest seabird colonies along Canada’s west coast. It provides nesting habitat for a wide-variety of both ground and burrow-nesting birds. This report summarizes finding from 2 visits to the island during 2004 to survey (on foot) for ground nesting activity of Black Oystercatchers, Glaucous-winged Gulls, Common Murre and Brandts Cormorant.
