Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk,December 11, 2011

Glaucous Gull: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Shelly Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville. The morning was cloudy and cool with calm winds. The highlights included seeing two juvenile Glaucous Gulls, a Herring Gull, Thayer's Gulls, Glaucous-winged Gulls and a Eurasian Wigeon from near the viewing platform. A Northern Harrier flew low across the estuary three times searching for prey and a Peregrine Falcon was perched in a tall conifer tree not far from us. A colourful male Purple Finch landed in a bush next to the trail and gave us great views.
