Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk,March 27, 2012





















Bonaparte's Gulls in flight: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning was cloudy with light rain showers and a strong biting wind off the Strait of Georgia. The highlight of the morning was the sighting of a flock of Bonaparte's Gulls flying low over the water down the Strait of Georgia. Hundreds of Brant Geese were flying in and landing near the shore all morning. Black-bellied Plovers, Black Oystercatchers and Dunlin were feeding along the shoreline. We saw several flocks of Golden-crowned Kinglets and Ruby-crowned Kinglets in the tall trees. To finish off a great morning of birding, a male Yellow-rumped Warbler(Audubon's) hawked insects from a nearby bush as we were doing the tally at the end of the
walk.
