Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, March 23, 2010

The Tuesday bird walk went to Columbia Beach. The morning was cloudy with calm winds. We got close looks at Brant Geese, Greater Scaup, Lesser Scaup, Surf Scoter, White-winged Scoter, Black Scoter and Long-tailed Ducks that were in four rafts of thousand upon thousand of seabirds not far from shore. Three smaller rafts of Bufflehead and Common Goldeneye were just offshore. We saw a raft of at least forty Pacific Loons, along with a Pigeon Guillemot further offshore. We saw Black-bellied Plover, Black Turnstone and Dunlin on the big rocks past the gravel bar near the Pebble Beach Townhouses. Two Killdeer and four Black Oystercatcher along with about fifty Brant Geese were resting on the gravel bar.
