Parksville pause

Brant Geese re-fueling for the long flight to Alaska.
Brant Geese re-fueling for flight...
Every year, in the spring, hundreds of Brant Geese descend on the local beaches of Parksville. In the winter they spend the cold weather in sensible places like Mexico and Baja California.

In February through April they migrate to Alaska, taking breaks along the way to fatten up by chowing down on eel grass and herring roe.
