In Neil's absence I've volunteered to send you the Tuesday Birdwalk counts so you can post them on your blogspot and disburse to the email listing.
Also, Paul and I went to Deep Bay Sunday (Nov. 7/10) and were lucky enough to site a Snow Bunting flitting around the grass and sand by the point.
Snow Geese were still sited at the Parksville Community Park.
The morning was cool and rainy with some high wind gusts, keeping most birds hunkered down out of sight. However, we did get a really great view of a Red-tailed Hawk as it sat perched atop an old log.
With John Purves as our guide, 8 hardy birders saw or heard the following 30 birds:
Next Tuesday Birdwalk is to the Little Qualicum River Estuary.
Until next week - good birding.
