Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, June 02, 2009

The Tuesday Bird Walk went to Lot Ten along the Little Qualicum River in Qualicum Beach. The morning was sunny and calm. A Warbling Vireo was singing as we started the walk and we continued to hear them sing for most of the morning. We saw Orange-crowned Warblers and a Black-throated Gray Warbler high up in the trees. A Townsend's Warbler and a Hammond's Flycatcher were singing. We saw two Spotted Sandpipers several times during the morning flying just above the water on the Little Qualicum River. We watched as two Brown Creepers took insects into a nest under the bark of a snag. A Red-breasted Sapsucker was gleaning insects just above us giving us great close-up looks. We watched a Pacific-slope Flycatcher hawking insects as it flew from it's perch several times.
