The Purcell’s Cove Backlands are a “Flyway Corridor” for raptors and many other migrating birds, coming back to the Williams Lake area. During the 2020 spring migration, Fulton Lavender and Martha R. Leary, bird watching enthusiasts, recorded 2 Peregrine Falcons, a Golden Eagle, 5 Bald Eagles, a Rough Legged Hawk and a wayward Eurasian Kestrel. Get out into the Backlands for this year’s spectacular springtime migration.
