In a wild place on the west coast of Vancouver Island, author, photographer, and birdwatcher, Adrian Dorst, tells of a time he witnessed fifty or sixty thousand migrating Western Sandpipers: “It looked like snow – except that the snow was drifting upwards! It was just an amazing sight – so many birds in the air. I mean it’s quite overwhelming to try to estimate, when there are so many birds in the air at once. But based on doing bird counts here for so many years, that’s the figure that we came up with ... fifty or sixty thousand. Quite a sight!”
