We have a great area for the Christmas Bird Count, which includes the area of Milner, BC. This is where Langley has a great many greenhouses. This year our weather was cold and snowy and there were very few places that had open water. The warmer water from the greenhouses flows into the ditches in the area melting snow and ice which allows these West Coast inland shorebirds the ability to feed and stay relatively warm. The Wilson's Snipe is well camouflaged for the grassland life but not so much for greenery.
