November 7, 2017 - Englishman River / Plummer Road


The Tuesday bird walk went to the Englishman River on the Plummer Road side in Parksville. The morning was cloudy with a strong wind off the strait of Georgia.  We spotted a Norther Harrier at the beginning of the morning flying just above the grass. The Harrier then perched on a log to give us great views.  A Cooper's Hawk and a Merlin flew over head. A very large flock of  American Wigeons with one Eurasian Wigeon were seen swimming in the flooded estuary. Three flocks of Dunlin and a flock of Black-bellied Plovers were seen flying up the Strait Of Georgia. We spotted a Clark’s Grebe swimming up the Strait and we were entertained by him for about thirty minutes.

Twelve birders saw and heard the following fifty-five Species:
Canada Geese, American Wigeon, Eurasian Wigeon, Bufflehead, Mallard, Northern Pintail, Green-winged Teal, Greater Scaup, Harlequin Duck, Surf Scoter, White-winged Scoter, Black Scoter, Long-tailed Duck, Common Goldeneye, Common Merganser, Red-breasted Merganser, Ancient Murrelet, Common Murre, Pacific Loon, Common Loon, Red-necked Grebe, Horned Grebe, Clark’s Grebe, Double-crested Cormorant, Brandt’s Cormorant, Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagle, Norther Harrier, Cooper's Hawk, Merlin, Killdeer, Dunlin, Black-bellied, Plover, Mew Gull, California Gull, Iceland Gull, Glaucous-winged Gull, Belted Kingfisher, Anna's Hummingbird, Northern Flicker, Common Raven, Northwestern Crow, Steller’s Jay, Eurasian-collared Dove, Chestnut-backed Chickadee, European Starling, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Spotted Towhee, Fox Sparrow, Song Sparrow, Golden-crowned Sparrow, Dark-eyed Junco, Red-winged Blackbird, Brewer’s Blackbird & House Finch.

The Tuesday bird walk on November 14, 2017 will be going to Columbia Beach in French Creek. Meet at the Parksville Community Park (at the parking lot in front of the Lions Club Playground) at 9:00 a.m. or at the parking area off Admiral Tryon Blvd. (turn onto Columbia Drive off highway 19a then turn right onto Admiral Tryon Blvd.  Go about one hundred yards and turn left to the parking area) at about 9:15 a.m.
