Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, March 26, 2013

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Plummer Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville. The morning was sunny and warm with calm winds off the Strait of Georgia. Large numbers of Pine Siskins were with us throughout the morning. We saw huge flocks of Red Crossbills in the forest and huge rafts of seabirds on the Strait. A Red-tailed Hawk perched close to the trail giving us great views to finish off a perfect morning of birding. A special thanks to John Purves for leading this mornings bird walk!
