Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, April 10, 2012

American Dipper: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Little Qualicum River Hatchery north of Qualicum Beach. The morning was sunny and warm. Harlequin Ducks were just below us on the rocks at the viewing platform in Qualicum Beach as we gathered for our walk. Huge numbers of seabirds were further off shore. An American Dipper welcomed us as we entered the Hatchery area. We saw and heard Red-breasted Sapsuckers, Downy Woodpeckers, a Hairy Woodpecker, Northern Flickers and a Pileated Woodpecker throughout the morning. There were many Yellow-rumped Warblers that greeted us as we walked through the woods.
