Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, December 08,2009

The Tuesday Bird Walk went to Deep Bay. The morning was sunny with calm winds but it was a little nippy at -7c. The sea was like glass, giving us ideal conditions to observe the large rafts of seabirds that were out on the water. The highlights of the morning included seeing and hearing a large raft of singing Black Scoters near the shoreline. One Dunlin and one Black-Bellied Plover made an appearance not five feet from us along the shoreline. There were a large number of White-winged Scoters and a smaller raft of Surf Scoters not far from out on the water. Four Trumpeter Swans flew up island near Denman Island. A Pigeon Guillemot, along with two Marbled Murrelets, stayed off the point for the best part of the morning, giving us great long looks. The Long-tailed Ducks entertained us all morning with their singing as they swam close to shoreline at the Point.
