Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, October, 04,2010

Long-billed Dowitcher: Ralph Hocken Photo.

Hi birders,

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Little Qualicum River Estuary, just past Qualicum Beach. The morning was cloudy with strong winds off the Strait of Georgia. We saw one Greater Scaup land in with a raft of White-winged and Black Scoters. Three Bald Eagles flew over the estuary, giving rise to a mixed flock of Mallards and American Wigeon. A Western Sandpiper and a Long-billed Dowitcher were feeding along the shore in the estuary with American Wigeon, Green-winged Teal and Northern Pintail.

Twenty birders saw and heard the following forty-eight species:
