Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, October 12,2010
Northern Harrier: Ralph Hocken Photo.
The Tuesday bird walk went to the Shelly Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville.
The morning was cloudy and cool with a strong wind off the Strait of Georgia.
The big highlight of the morning was the sighting of an immature Northern Harrier standing in the tall grasses. We watched the Harrier for about fifteen minutes before the he flew up and started hunting low over the field. We saw several migrating Yellow-rumped Warblers low down in the bushes. A Sharp-shinned Hawk was perched in a tree giving us good views. We watched as six Northern Flickers landed in a snag close to the trail--a few of the large number of Northern Flickers that we saw throughout the morning . A Greater Yellowlegs landed not far from us, calling out and giving us great views. We spotted a mixed flock of Golden-crowned Kinglets and Ruby-crowned Kinglets in a low bush not far from us.
Eleven Birders saw and heard the following fifty-seven species
Greater White-fronted Goose
Great Blue Heron
