Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, November 24, 2009

Horned Grebe: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday Bird Walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning was cloudy and the winds off the water were brisk. The highlights of the morning included watching three flocks of Greater White-fronted Geese and one flock of Snow Geese as they flew high overhead heading down the Island. We saw one lone Brant Goose in with a flock of Mallards near the shoreline and two other larger flocks over the water. Bufflehead, Horned Grebes, Common Goldeneye, Common Mergansers, Red-breasted Mergansers, Pacific Loons and Common Loons were further offshore. We watched as eight male and female Purple Finch and three Varied Thrush ate the berries on a low bush near the marsh area.
