Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, May 05, 2009

Purple Finch: Mike Ashbee Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to Springwood Park in Parksville. The morning started out with rain and actually turned quite nice about half way through the morning. The highlights included
the sighting of a Black-throated Gray Warbler. We had followed the singing of it for about an hour until we were rewarded with the sight of it quite low in the bushes for us to have some great looks. A Purple Finch put on a spectacular courting display for us as he tried to impress a female Purple Finch at the top of a snag. His wings quickly fluttering and the feathers on his head were all puffed out. Obviously he was impressive to her--at the end of the display they went beak to beak, hovering above the snag! He certainly impressed us, as well, with his display.
Six birders saw and heard the following twenty-eight species of birds:
Canada Goose
Trumpeter Swan
California Quail
