2021-09-20 - Turkey Vultures at Esquimalt Lagoon - From mid-September, huge numbers of turkey vultures, hawks, falcons, kestrels, harriers, osprey, and eagles gather in East Sooke Park on Southern Vancouver Island before crossing Juan de Fuca Strait. “They are so big and there are so many of them, you don't even need binoculars.” The best time is the last two weeks of September, and into early October. The peak is generally the last weekend of September, and there are often field trips scheduled at that time. An excellent place to observe the vultures and raptors is the Aylard Farm end of East Sooke Regional Park - picture by Gary Woodburn
