Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, April 03, 2012
Mountain Bluebird: Ralph Hocken Photo.
The Tuesday bird walk went to the Little Qualicum River Estuary. The morning was cloudy with sunny periods and a strong biting wind off the Strait of Georgia for most of the morning. Large rafts with thousands of Northern Pintail, Greater Scaup, Lesser Scaup, Surf Scoter, Long-tailed Duck, Bufflehead, Common Goldeneye and Barrow's Goldeneye were seen off the mouth of the Englishman River. We saw a flock of over fifty Yellow-rumped Warblers moving along the wooded area towards the river that kept us entertained as we headed back to the parking area. A Mountain Bluebird made our morning complete as it perched on the goose pens off Shorewood Drive. We watched for the better part of thirty minutes as it hawked insects and flew back to it's perch.
Fourteen birders saw and hear the following sixty-four species:
Great Blue Heron
