Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday Bird Walk, Tuesday bird walk, December 22, 2009

Killdeer: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday Bird Walk went to the Little Qualicum River Estuary in Qualicum Beach. The morning was sunny with a cool breeze off the choppy sea.
At the beginning of the morning, we spotted six Long-tailed Ducks and twelve Horned Grebes from the viewing platform off of Highway 19A. There were thirteen Great Blue Herons on the estuary. One lone Killdeer flew noisely past us. A large raft of singing Black Scoters were not far from shore and a hugh flock of Gulls were seen near the horizon. The highlight of the morning, however, was the sight of forty-four Trumpeter Swans at the mouth of the Qualicum River.
