The Wednesday Bird Walk went to Top Bridge Trail, starting out from Craig Road in the industrial park. Sixteen birders found twenty-eight species with good looks at Chipping Sparrows, Orange-crowned Warblers, killdeer and Yellow-rumped Warblers, both Myrtle and Audubon species. The many Rufous Hummingbirds were busy putting on a show during the walk with great views of the males flashing some colour. Some other highlights of the walk were a Black-throated Gray Warbler singing at the top of a Cedar tree and a Killdeer in an open patch that allow us to observe moving through the grasses.
