Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, November 22,2011

The Tuesday bird walk went to Columbia Beach. The morning was sunny and warm with calm winds, making for a great morning of birding. The highlights included seeing three Black-bellied Plover, several Black Oystercatcher, one Greater Yellowlegs, ten Black Turnstones and a large flock of Western Sandpipers on the gravel bar near Pebble Beach. Seven Eurasian-collared Doves were perched on trees along the road. We saw a large number of White-crowned Sparrows and Golden-crowned Sparrows near the end of the walk.
