Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, December 16, 2014

The Tuesday bird walk went to Deep Bay. The morning was filled with light rain and the Strait of Georgia was calm. The highlights included seeing a Eurasian Wigeon in with a huge flock of American Wigeon next to the parking lot. Large numbers of singing Black Scoters along with many White-winged Scoters were not far from shore. Fifteen Long-tailed Ducks, two Marbled Murrelets, two Common Murre and a Pigeon Guillemot were diving and surfacing just off the Point not far from shore giving great views.
