The Tuesday bird walk went to the Victoria Quay and Somass Estuary in Port Alberni. The morning started out cloudy but soon turned sunny and warm. The highlight of the morning was great views of five Yellow-rumped Warblers flycatching along the Somass Estuary. A large flock of Lesser Scaup and Ring-necked Ducks were on the sewage ponds. We saw a Northern Shrike four different times during the morning. Two Western Grebe greeted us on the Alberni Inlet at the end of the walk.
The Tuesday morning birders would like to say a special thanks to Sandy McRuer for guiding us--it turned out to be a marvelous morning of birding!
