Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, Septenber 15, 2009

Black Oystercatcher: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday Bird Walk went to Columbia Beach this week. The tide was very low exposing the far reaching rocky beach. The winds were strong, but the sun came out as the morning progressed. The highlights of the morning included seeing a total of fifty-three Black Ostercatchers feeding and resting along the tideline. Flocks of American Wigeon, Northern Pintail, Surf Scoter, White-winged Scoter, Common Merganser and American Wigeon flew passed us over the water. The seabirds are beginning to return for the winter!

Ten birders saw the following twenty-two species of birds:
American Wigeon
Northern Pintail
