Hi Birders,

The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning was cloudy with a stiff wind off the Strait of Georgia. The highlights included seeing thirty-eight Brant Geese fly in and land just off shore. A large flock of Dunlin, Black-bellied Plover and Black Turnstone were seen right on the tide line. A large flock of Mew Gulls, California Gulls, Thayer's Gulls and several Glaucous-winged Gulls were roosting on a gravel bar near the shore. Several flocks with six to nine Common Murre flew down the Strait of Georgia throughout the morning. We spotted a Pigeon Guillemot, a Marbled Murrelet and a Cassin's Auklet bouncing on the waves further off shore.

Fifteen birders saw and heard the following thirty-nine species of birds:
