Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, September 07, 2010

The Parksville/ Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk began today for the fall season and went to the Shelly Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville. The morning was cloudy and cool but the winds were calm.
The highlights of the morning included a good look at a Greater Yellowlegs flying over us, singing as it headed over the forest from the ocean. A Sharp-shinned Hawk flew not far from of us over the estuary, checking out the stumps and shrubs for a morning snack. A Yellow Warbler and a Black-throated Gray Warbler gave us quick looks as they gleaned insects on a short Alder Tree. We had numerous sightings of Black Swifts as we walked back from the viewing platform on the west side of the forest.

American Wigeon
