Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, November 12, 2013

 

The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning was windy and cloudy with sunny periods and a light shower during the morning. A large flock of Dunlin and Black-bellied Plovers were feeding along the tide line when we arrived at low tide. We saw many Pacific Loons, Common Loons, Horned Grebes and Red-necked Grebes on the choppy Strait of Georgia. Several flocks of American Wigeon, Mallard and Common Goldeneye flew down the Strait. We had great close views of several Golden-crowned Kinglets and Ruby-crowned Kinglets on the walk through the forest.
