Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday Bird Walk, May 26, 2009

The Tuesday Bird Walk went to the Plummer Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville. The morning was cloudy with periods of rain. The walk started out with the sighting of a flock of Black and Vaux's Swifts hawking insects high in the sky. A flock of twelve Bald Eagles gave us a spectular sight high up in the sky, riding the thermos . We saw and heard both Willow Flycatchers and a Pacific-slope Flycatcher throughout the morning walk. There was a Yellow Warbler gleaning insects on a tall bush near the path. A flock of Brant Geese flew into the Estuary from the Strait.

Fourteen birders saw and heard the following forty-six species of birds:
