Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday Bird Walk, January 26, 2010

Black-bellied Plover: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday Bird Walk went to the Little Qualicum River Estuary in Qualicum Beach.
The morning was sunny and warm with calm winds and sea.
There were over twenty Black Turnstones on the rocks just off shore at the viewing platform and twelve Black Oystercatchers and one Black-bellied Plover on the gravel bar. A large raft of Black Scoters were singing offshore at the Little Qualicum Estuary near the parking area. Further offshore a huge flock of Pacific Loons along with Common Loons and Gulls were in a raft that stretched from the tip of Texada Island to Chrome Island. During the morning the Pacific and Common Loons flew from one end of the raft to other. We saw over forty Trumpeter Swans on the River.
Eight birders saw the following thirty-five species of birds:
Canada Goose
Trumpeter Swan
American Wigeon
Northern Pintail
Greater Scaup
Harlequin Duck
Surf Scoter
White-winged Scoter
Black Scoter
Common Goldeneye
