Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, June 16, 2009




American Dipper: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday Bird Walk went to the Top Bridge Trail in Parksville. The morning was pleasant with periods of sunshine and was filled with bird songs. The highlights of the morning was seeing Willow Flycatchers perching and hearing them singing. We spotted an American Dipper feeding near a big rock in the Englishman River. A family of Chipping Sparrows entertained us near the trail. A Pileated Woodpecker was clinging to a tree, giving us a great view. Pacific-slope Flycatchers, Warbling Vireos, Winter Wrens and Swainson's Thrush sang throught the morning.
