Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, April 19, 2011

The Tuesday bird walk went to Columbia Beach and French Creek. The morning was a perfect spring morning--sunny with a breeze off the Strait of Georgia. There were several flocks of Brant flying just above the water. Surf Scoters, White-winged Scoters, Bufflehead, Red-breasted Mergansers, a Common Murre, a Marbled Murrelet, a Horned Grebe and a Red-necked Grebe were on the Strait. We saw several Yellow-rumped Warblers high up in the Alder trees along Frech Creek. An Orange-crowned Warbler was perched and singing at the top of a bush giving us great views. We spotted two Savannah Sparrows fly into the grass near French Creek. The Sparrows both perched on a Blackberry branch for us to view.
