The Tuesday bird walk went to the Top Bridge Trail in Parksville. Eighteen birders saw and head twenty-eight species of birds. The morning was sunny and very windy.
Among the highlights a Mourning Dove flew past fast at the start of the walk, we saw and heard Purple Finch and Orange-crowned Warblers all morning.
