Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, October 06, 2009

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Little Qualicum River Estuary in Qualicum Beach.
The morning was sunny and warm--a perfect day for birding. The highlights included the sighting of a Common Murre, five species of Gulls--Bonaparte's Gulls, Mew Gulls, California Gulls, Thayer's Gulls and Glaucous-winged Gulls. Harlequin Ducks entertained us not far from shore. A raft of Pacific Loons, a Western Grebe, Horned Grebes and Red-necked Grebes were spotted offshore.
