We then arrived at the ferry dock in Kootenay Bay and took our place in line for the Osprey 2000.
There was enough time before the arrival of the ferry to scan the swallows flying around the area. Amongst the many Barn Swallow, we spotted 2 Violet-green Swallows, lifer #267. A very beautiful bird with the white on the cheek extending above the eye and its white flanks extending onto its rump. With the lifer Violet-green Swallow ticked I relaxed with an Americano Espresso (the coffee in B.C. is amazing) at Mojo's Cafe while playing chess with Danie's son Greg.
The combination of ASA and caffeine brought me back to 100% birding fitness as there were more birds to find on the west side of Kootenay Lake.
