Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk

The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning was cloudy. As we neared the Strait of Georgia we were greeted with a strong, biting wind. The walk through the forest was wind free and quite warm. The highlights included seeing hundreds of Dunlin, Black Turnstones and Black-bellied Plover feeding along the tideline. We saw several Horned Grebes, Red-necked Grebes, Common Goldeneye, Red-breasted Mergansers, Pacific Loons and Common Loons on the rough water of the strait. A Cooper’s Hawk was spotted circling above the edge of the forest. We had great looks at two Brown Creepers creeping up the trunks of conifer trees.
Sixteen birders saw and heard the following forty-two species:
