Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, April 30, 2013
The Tuesday bird walk went to the Top Bridge Trail in Parksville. The morning started out cloudy with a cool wind, but turned sunny and warm. We saw an Orange-crowned Warbler and heard a Chipping Sparrow at the start of the walk. We heard and then had excellent views of a Cassin’s Vireo singing and feeding on a tree not far from the trail. Black-throated Gray Warblers were singing throughout the morning and one made an appearance late in the morning.
Eighteen birders including a visiting birder from Calgary saw and heard the following thirty-nine species:
Black-throated Gray Warbler
Yellow-rumped Warbler: Ralph Hocken Photo.
The Tuesday bird walk will be going to the Plummer Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville.
