Tuesday Bird Walk
On June 25 the Tuesday bird walk went to the Englishman River Estuary, Shelly road, in Parksville. The morning was sunny and winds were light. Highlight of the walk was a Great Horned Owl roosting in a tree near the trail entrance off of Mills street. There was plenty of other birds to see at that location including, House Finch, Purple Finch, American Goldfinch, Pine Siskin’s, Yellow Warbler, and Bushtits.
