Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, February 05, 2013

The Tuesday bird walk went to Deep Bay. The morning was cloudy with rain showers and a strong wind off the Strait of Georgia. The highlights included seeing Long-tailed Ducks in their usual spot just off shore at the point (we have decided to call it the Long-tail Point). We saw and heard the Black Scoters singing through-out the morning. Surf Scoters and White-winged Scoters were plenty-full on the water. A Sharp-shinned Hawk was perched high up in a tree, giving us great views.
Fourteen wet hardy birders saw and heard the following forty-five species:
Canada Goose
