The Tuesday bird walk went to Little Qualicum River Estuary. The morning was calm, but unfortunately the fog remained over the water throughout the morning limiting our view. We saw a flock of Brant fly by at the viewing station and several Oystercatchers landed among the rocks. There was also a Western Gull spotted just off shore. A Yellow-rumped Warbler was spotted along the houses leading to the Estuary. Surf Scoters were heard off in the fog at the end of our walk.
17 birders saw or heard the following 35 species.
Great Blue Heron
