Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, September, 27,2011

Hi birders,

The Tuesday Birdwalk went to Columbia Beach. The morning was mosty cloudy with a little rain and the winds were mostly calm. The highlight of the morning was the sighting of three flocks of Greater White-fronted Geese. Three of the Greater White-fronted Geese flew so low over us that we could see their speckled bellies. They circled around us as if they were going to land but they changed their minds and continued to fly into the eastern sky. A flock of forty Greater White-fronted Geese flew past high overhead heading straight south. We spotted a Common Murre, two Pigeon Guillemots and a Marbled Murrelet riding the waves on the water.

Twenty-five birders saw and heard the following forty-seven species:
Greater White-fronted Goose
