Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk,January 11, 2011

Hi birders,

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Shelly Road side of the Englishman River Estuary. The morning was cloudy and cool but the wind was calm. The Strait of Georgia was also very calm near shore, but choppy further off shore. Golden-crowned Kinglets and Ruby-crowned Kinglets were up high in the trees. We saw large numbers of Song Sparrows. We spotted three Western Meadowlarks and Killdeer feeding on a gravel bar in the river. Hundreds of Common Murre and Pacific Loons were moving down the Strait of Georgia. The Peregrine Falcon was perched in it's usual tree top snag. Near the end of the walk a flock of over fifteen Evening Grosbeak flew into the top of a Alder Tree giving us great views.
