Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Little Qualicum River Estuary in Qualicum Beach. The morning was sunny and the wind and the seas were calm. The highlights included seeing three large flocks of American Widgeon flying over the water. We saw many Red-necked Grebes and Common Loons from the viewing platform off of Highway 19A. There were large numbers of Bonaparte’s Gulls, Mew Gulls, California Gulls, Killdeer and Western Sandpipers on the Estuary.
