Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, September 13, 2011

Horned Grebe: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Plummer Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville. The morning was cloudy but very pleasant with calm winds. We saw four Common Loons just offshore giving us good views. They were also singing---a nice treat! Two
Marbled Murrelet, Horned Grebes, Red-necked Grebes, a Double-crested Cormorant and a Pelagic Cormorant were offshore. Surf Scoters and White-winged Scoters were spotted flying over the water heading down the Strait of Georgia. A Semipalmated Plover, several Killdeer as well as Western Sandpipers and Least Sandpipers were on the mud flats as the tide was going out.
