Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk,January 17, 2012

Long-tailed Ducks: Ralph Hocken Photo.

Hi birders,

The Tuesday bird walk went to Deep Bay. The morning was cold with snow flurries and a strong biting wind off the Strait of Georgia. The highlights included seeing a Cackling Goose in with a flock of mostly Richardson's Race and Common Canada Geese. Three of the Canada Geese were very unusual. They were light coloured with a dusting of white on their brown necks and heads, rather than the usual black heads and necks. We saw a flock of Black-bellied Plovers, Black Turnstones and Dunlin resting on the snow near the shore. The big sighting of the morning was twenty-eight Long-tailed Ducks in the water not twenty feet from the point giving us all great views of this special duck.
Eight cold and snow blown birders including two visiting birders from Australia saw and heard the following forty-three species.
