Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, October 19,2010

Glaucous-winged Gull: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The
morning was sunny and warm with a light breeze off the water.
The big surprise of the morning was hearing and seeing a Common Nighthawk as we
walked through the campground. We saw several Pacific Loons on the Strait of
Georgia, but one of them was in full breeding plumage--it was a spectular sight.
One lone Black Turnstone circled and landed near the shoreline. We watched a
Golden-crowned Kinglet and a Ruby-crowned Kinglet in the bushes next to us as
they moved about quickly, gleaning insects.

Thirteen birders saw and heard the following forty-one species of birds.
Canada Goose
American Wigeon
Greater Scaup
