Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday Bird Walk, February 02, 2010

The Tuesday, February 2nd Bird Walk went to Deep Bay.
The morning was cloudy with fog and misty rain, but the winds were calm and the Strait of Georgia was like glass.
The Black Scoters and Long-tailed Ducks were singing and diving just off shore. We spotted a Pigeon Guillemot near Denman Island. A huge raft of Greater Scaup, Harlequin Ducks, Surf Scoters, White-winged Scoters, Black Scoters, Bufflehead, Common Goldeneye, Barrow's Goldeneye, Common Mergansers, Red-breasted Mergansers and Brant Geese were not far from shore. A flock of Brandt's Cormorants, Double-crested Cormorants and Pelagic Cormorants flew over the water, heading toward Denman Island.
