Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, November 08,2011
Anna's Hummingbird: Ralph Hocken Photo.
The Tuesday bird walk went to the Plummer Road side of the Englishman River Estuary. The morning was cloudy with a light rain falling but the winds were calm. We saw large numbers of Purple Finch, Dark-eyed Junco and one Anna's Hummingbird in the bushes just off the trail. We spotted a Merlin perched high in a conifer and there was a Sharp-shinned Hawk perched high in another conifer further away. Another Sharp-shinned Hawk flew in to attack a perched, much larger, Cooper's Hawk not far from us. The Cooper's Hawk, however, stood his ground and the Sharp-shinned Hawk flew off and perched a little further away. Several Horned Grebes, one Western Grebe, a Double-crested Cormorant and four Common Goldeneye were on the Strait Of Georgia. Six Long-tailed Ducks flew in and joined the other seabirds. Two Bald Eagles flew in to stir things up and thousands of gulls lifted off the water. We saw two Long-billed Dowitchers and a Western Sandpiper in with a flock of sixty Green-winged Teal on the mud flats.
Sixteen birders saw and heard the following forty-nine species:
Great Blue Heron
