Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, October 18,2011





















Ruby-crowned Kinglet: Ralph Hocken Photo.


The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning started off cool and foggy but the fog lifted and let the sun shine on the birds and the birders. A Merlin perching on the top of a tall Fir Tree greeted us near the parking lot. A large flock of American Robins were feasting on a berry bush near the trail. A Herring Gull was just off shore. A large flock of Pacific Loons, Common Loons, several Horned Grebes and Red-necked Grebes and two Western Grebes were further off shore. We saw Golden-crowned Kinglets, Ruby-crowned Kinglets and Cedar Waxwings in the bushes just off the trail.
