Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, January 08, 2013


The Tuesday bird walk went to Columbia Beach. The morning was wet with rain all morning and the wind was picking up at the end of the walk. Great for the hardy to be outside birding along the Strait of Georgia! The highlight of the morning was the sighting of over ten flocks of Common Murre racing just above the water with Pacific Loons down the Strait . We saw an Eurasian Widgeon in with a flock of American Widgeon on the pond near the Pebble Beach Townhouses.

Nine wet birders saw and heard the following thirty-three species:
American Widgeon
Eurasian Widgeon
Harlequin Duck
Surf Scoter
White-winged Scoter
Long-tailed Duck
Common Goldeneye
Common Merganser
Red-breasted Merganser
Common Murre
Pacific Loon
Common Loon
Horned Grebe
Red-necked Grebe
Double-crested Cormorant
Black-bellied Plover
Black Oystercatcher
Black Turnstone
Mew Gull
Thayer's Gull
Glaucous-winged Gull
Eurasian-collared Dove
Northern Shrike
Northern Flicker
Northwestern Crow
European Starling
Chestnut-backed Chickadee
Song Sparrow
White-crowned Sparrow
Golden-crowned Sparrow
Dark-eyed Junco

The Tuesday bird walk on January 15 will be going to the Englishman River Estuary Shelly Road side in Parksville.

Good birding
