Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday Bird Walk, January 05, 2010


Red-breasted Merganser: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday Bird Walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning was cloudy with fog over the water. The highlights included being greeted at the start of the walk by a large number of Bushtits, Dark-eyed Juncos and Golden-crowned Sparrows moving through the small bushes near the parking lot. Two Western Grebes, a very large raft of Surf Scoters and over two hundred Common Murres were observed offshore. Several small flocks of Pacific Loons were seen heading down the Strait of Georgia. There were several Seals and Sea-lions resting not far from the shoreline.
