Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, October 25, 2016
The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. The morning started out with “hold on to your scope” winds off the water, and the rain continued fairly steady throughout the morning. 7 Brandt were seen flying low over the water, and both a Sharp-shinned Hawk and Merlin were spotted over the trees.
7 hardy, wind worn birders, who didn’t get the memo, saw and heard the following 31 species:Brandt
Pacific WrenBewick’s Wren
Dark-eyed JuncoChestnut-backed Chickadee
Same place next week, and hopefully, we can increase that count.
Good birding,Rhonda Fleming
