Winter Wren in the Lantern Room


  • Visibility: 15 miles
  • Wind: 0-5 knots N, later NW
  • Sky: clear
  • Water: calm
  • Lovely day!


  • Encountered a winter wren in the lantern room of the lighthouse.
  • Opened the outdoor hatch to let it out, but instead it hid inside an air vent.
  • I presume the wren is still inside the room, unless it found a way out.
  • Luckily I had the camera with me.
  • The last time a winter wren was documented at Race Rocks was April 19, 2014.


  • Ran the desalinator during the afternoon.
  • Spray painted an empty diesel barrel.
  • The usual chores.


  • The Royal Canadian Marine Search & Rescue boat came through the reserve again.
  • Several eco-tours, sailboats, and pleasure craft wandered through today.
