Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk,March 06, 2012

Dunlin and Black-bellied Plovers in Flight: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning was clear and sunny but cool, with a strong wind. At the start of the walk, a Merlin flew over us, calling as it disappeared over the tall trees. Other highlights included seeing large numbers of Dunlin feeding near the tide line and moving in well choreographed clouds as they moved along the shoreline. Over two hundred Brant were just offshore. Several large rafts of Gulls were in a feeding frenzy further offshore.
Nineteen birders saw and heard the following thirty-three species:
American Wigeon
Greater Scaup
Surf Scoter
White-winged Scoter
