Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday Bird Walk, June 09, 2009




Chestnut-backed Chickadee: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday Bird Walk went to Springwood Park in Parksville. The morning was sunny and calm and was filled with bird songs. The highlight of the day was hearing a Red-eyed Vireo singing non stop from high up in the forest canopy for about twenty minutes. Warbling Vireos, Orange-crowned Warblers and a Townsend's Warbler serenaded us as well for most of the morning. We watched as two Brown Creepers took nesting material into a nest under the bark of a big leaf maple tree. We saw Red-breasted Nuthatches gleaning insects high up in a tree. There was a fledgling Pileated Woodpecker clinging to the bark of a tree, not daring to move and a family of Bewick's Wrens low in the bushes, next to the trail, scurring about.

Twenty birders saw and heard the following thirty species of birds.
