Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, November 29,2011

Long-tailed Duck: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to Deep Bay. The morning started out cloudy and calm, but soon turned cold and rainy with strong biting winds off the Strait of Georgia. Long-tailed Ducks are the highlight of our trip up to Deep Bay every year and we were not disappointed this year. We were treated with the sighting of four male and three female Long-tailed Ducks just offshore at the point. We saw several Varied Thrush on the Arbutus Trees near the parking area. We watched as two Pigeon Guillemot played hide and seek with us in the waves. Following the bird walk, Bob took us on an interesting tour of the Nile Creek Fish Hatchery.
