Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, September, 20,2011

Parasitic Jaeger: Ralph Hocken Photo.

Hi birders,

The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning was sunny and warm but a little chilly in the forest. The winds were calm and the water on the Strait of Georgia was smooth like glass. The highlight of the morning was spotting a Parasitic Jaeger who was harassing a Glaucous-winged Gull. The Jaeger stopped to rest on the water giving us all good long looks at him through the scopes. After about ten minutes and fairly close to shore, the Jaeger chased another Gull putting on a spectacular display for us.

Twenty-four birders saw and heard the following forty-three species:

Canada Goose
American Wigeon
Surf Scoter
White-winged Scoter
Common Merganser
Pacific Loon
Common Loon
Horned Grebe
Red-necked Grebe
Double-crested Cormorant
Pelagic Cormorant

Parasitic Jaeger
Bonaparte's Gull
Mew Gull
California Gull

Common Murre
Marbled Murrelet

Good birding
