Brant
The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning was sunny with calm winds, although it was cool in the forest out of the sunshine. We had a great morning of birding. We watched a flock of thirty Black-bellied Plovers and about two hundred Dunlin dance in the sky for several minutes and then land on the rocks at the point. When we looked closely at the flock
