Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, october 22, 2013
The Tuesday bird walk went to Columbia Beach. The morning was foggy and cool with calm winds. We managed to see a Bufflehead,three Common Mergansers and two
Common Loons on the foggy Strait of Georgia. Two Anna’s Hummingbirds perched on shrub just off the road. We had good views of a Savannah Sparrow and two Fox Sparrows as we walked along the road. A juvenile Northern Shrike was perched on a top of a short tree along the waterfront giving us good looks.
