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

The Tuesday Bird Walk went to the Little Qualicum River Estuary in Qualicum Beach.
The water was turquoise blue with the Herring spawn. A huge raft of thousands upon thousands of seabirds, including Brant Geese, Greater Scaup, Harlequin Duck, Surf Scoter, White-winged Scoter, Black Scoter, Long-tailed Duck, Bufflehead, Common Goldeneye and Barrow's Goldeneye were offshore at the viewing platform in Qualicum Beach. Black-bellied Plovers, Black Oystercatchers, Black Turnstones and Dunlin along with Mew Gulls, California Gulls, one lone Herring Gull, Thayer's Gulls and Glaucous-winged Gulls were roosting along the shoreline. A pair of Bald Eagles appeared overhead and all the seabirds, shorebirds and gulls lifted in a spectacular display.
We saw an Eurasian Wigeon and a Northern Shoveler in among American Wigeon feeding along the Little Qualicum River. Twenty-one Trumpeter Swans swam lazily in the Estuary.
Thirteen birders saw and heard the following forty-eight species of birds:
Great Blue Heron
