Parksville/ Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, April 28, 2009


Bald Eagles: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Plummer Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville. The morning was sunny with a stiff wind coming off the water. The highlights included the sighting of four Pacific Loons in breeding plumage and several flocks of Brant Geese. A single Surf Scoter and a Black Scoter flew by heading up the Strait of Georgia. We spotted a Glaucous Gull in strikingly white Spring plummage sitting on a far gravel bar. Over 100 Green-winged Teal, Least Sandpipers, Western Sandpipers and one Greater Yellowlegs were on the mud flats. Rufous Hummingbirds entertained us all morning with their courting dives. Orange-crowned Warblers perched and sang their song. Spring has arrived!!
