Tuesday bird walk, September 10, 2013

The September 10, 2013 Bird Walk went to Little Qualicum River Estuary.
The morning was sunny, calm, and warm.  We were rewarded with the sighting of a Western Grebe at the Viewing Station.  At the Estuary we watched as a Northern Harrier searched the grasses for food.  A few other highlights of the morning were the sighting of both Common and Caspian Terns, as well as a Wandering Tattler.
22 birders saw and heard the following 44 species:
Canada Goose, Mallard, Northern Pintail, Black Scoter, White-winged Scoter, Common Merganser, Common Loon, Pacific Loon, Common Murre, Horned Grebe, Red-necked Grebe, Western Grebe, Double-crested Cormorant, Great Blue Heron, Spotted Sandpiper, Western Sandpiper, Least Sandpiper, Wandering Tattler, Black Turnstone, Killdeer, Bonaparte's Gull, Mew Gull, California Gull, Glaucous-winged Gull, Ring-billed Gull, Belted Kingfisher, Common Tern, Caspian Tern, Turkey Vulture, Bald Eagle, Northern Harrier, Cooper's Hawk, Northern Flicker, Northwestern Crow, Common Raven, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, Red-breasted Nuthatch, European Starling, Song Sparrow, Savannah Sparrow, House Finch, Barn Swallow, Eurasian-collared Dove and Rock Pigeon.
