Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk,January 03, 2012





















Long-tailed Duck: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to Columbia Beach. It was a blustery morning with clouds, rain and a strong wind. The surf was rolling off the Strait of Georgia all morning. Our highlights included seeing two Long-tailed Ducks flying right at us and then disappearing in the waves not far from shore. Pacific Loons and Common Murres were spotted flying further offshore. We spotted several Black Oystercatchers, one Greater Yellowlegs, over twenty Black Turnstones, two Sanderling, Mew Gulls, one Herring Gull, Thayer's Gulls, Glaucous-winged Gulls and six Brant on the gravel bar at Pebble Beach. As we were returning to our cars, we watched as twelve White-crowned Sparrows and one House Finch bathed in a puddle of water on the side of the road.
Eight very wet and wind blown birders, including two visiting birders from New Zealand and one visiting birder from Australia, saw the following thirty-five species:
