The Tuesday bird walk went to the Shelly Road side of the Englishman River in Parksville. The morning was cloudy with calm winds. A Hermit Thrush was spotted just off the trail. A Trumpeter Swan and three Canada Geese were seen along the river. Two Townsend’s Solitaires were seen perched in a berry bush not far from the trail. A Sharp-shinned Hawk was seen high up in a tall tree. White-crowned Sparrows and Golden-crowned Sparrows were heard singing all morning. A Chipping Sparrow was spotted just off the trail. We watched a Lincoln’s Sparrow preening itself in a bush near the trail. A Barred Owl was perched next to the trail giving us great views.
