Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk,February 28, 2012

Golden-crowned Kinglet: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Plummer Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville. The morning was cloudy with a very cold strong wind coming from the snow capped mountains on the island. The highlight species of the morning included seeing many Golden-crowned Kinglets feeding just off the trail. Small flocks of Long-tailed Ducks, flying close to the water, headed down the Strait of Georgia. There was a Common Goldeneye and Barrow's Goldeneye bobbing on the water not far from shore and we had great looks at them and an opportunity to compare the two species. Several large flocks of Dunlin flew close to the shore.
Thirteen hardy and dedicated birders saw and heard the following fifty-one species:
Canada Goose
American Wigeon
Northern Pintail
Green-winged Teal
Surf Scoter
