Rare Bird Alert--Eurasian Teal

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Plummer Road side of the Englishman Estuary in Parksville. The morning was cloudy but the wind was calm. The big highlight of the morning was the sighting of a Eurasian Teal (also known as a Common Teal) in with Green-winged Teal in the San Pariel mud flats off Mariner Way. The Eurasian Teal is a Northern European duck that winters in Britain, Holland and France. It is a regular visitor to Western Alaska and is a rare, but regular visitor along the Pacific Coast.

Good birding
