Across the Border and Back: Late Fall Birding at Point Roberts Professional Review and Guide
"In late fall, schools of herring attract many species of birds to this uniquely located and excellent birding area on Point Roberts. Get out those binoculars and bird books; the birds are abundant on this trip and easy to see. At Lighthouse Marine Park, walk the trail along the shore for the best views. Herring schools in October and November attract huge flocks of mixed species. At the end of Gulf Street, look for flocks of cormorants sitting on the pilings. Also watch for groups of great blue herons standing in fields; the largest heron colony (Northwest Coast subspecies) in the region is on the west side of Point Roberts."
