Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk,January 24, 2012

The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning was raining with very strong winds off the Straight of Georgia. We spotted a Golden-crowned Kinglet feeding down low just off the trail. Over one hundred Brant were just off shore, along with a dozen Black-bellied Plovers and about fifty Black Turnstones.
Six very dedicated birders saw and heard the following record low twelve species of birds:
Black-bellied Plover
Black Turnstone
Mew Gull
Thayer's Gull
Glaucous-winged Gull
Common Raven
Golden-crowned Kinglet
Spotted Towhee
Song Sparrow
Dark-eyed Junco

The Tuesday bird walk will be going to Columbia Beach on January 31.
We will meet at Parksville Community Park at the parking lot near the Lions Playground at 9:00 A.M. or the parking area off Admiral Tryon Blvd. at about 9:20 A.M.
Good birding
