The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning was sunny with a strong biting wind off the Strait of Georgia. The surf was up and fiercely pounding the shore. The highlights included seeing several Pacific Loons in the waves with Double-crested Cormorants and Pelagic Cormorants flying up the Strait. We spotted Golden-crowned Kinglets in with the Chestnut-backed Chickadees feeding in the high trees.
Ten birders saw and heard the following thirty-six species:
