Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, April 05, 2011
Harlequin Duck: Ralph Hocken Photo.
The Tuesday bird walk went to the Little Qualicum River Estuary. The morning started out cloudy with rain and a sharp wind off the Strait of Georgia, however the morning finished with only cloudy skies and no rain. Harlequin Ducks, Black Oystercatchers, Black Turnstones and large numbers of Bonaparte's Gulls, Mew Gulls, California Gulls, Thayer's Gulls, Glaucous-winged Gulls and a Herring and Western Gull lined the rocks along the shore line from the viewing platform in Qualicum Beach. A hugh raft of Brant Geese, Greater Scaup, Surf Scoters, White-winged Scoters, Black Scoter, Bufflehead, Common Goldeneye, Barrow's Goldeneye, Common Mergansers, Red-breasted Mergansers, Pacific Loons, Common Loons, Horned Grebe's and a Red-necked Grebe were just off shore from the viewing platform. We spotted a Northern Shrike at the estuary. As we left the mouth of the river we saw a massive flock of Gulls lift from the water. The flock stretched from Qualicum Bay past Chrome Island and on towards the mainland---IT WAS A SPECTACULAR SIGHT!
Fourteen birders saw and heard the following fifty-one species of birds:
Great Blue Heron
Eurasian Collared Dove
