Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, September 01, 2009

American Goldfinch: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday Bird Walk for the Oceanside area resumed this week and went to the Shelly Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville.
Highlights of the morning included watching as two Black-throated Gray Warblers and a Warbling Vireo dropped out of the sky onto a big Ash Tree. Several American Goldfinch moved through the bushes and we watched White-crowned Sparrows moving through bushes and along the ground. A flock of Red Crossbills nosily flew overhead. A Spotted Sandpiper flew across the river and then bobbed his tail as he probed along the shore for food. A Barred Owl, perched on a low branch, gave us impressive looks until he flew into the forest. After a few minutes he gave a few calls to let us know he was still there.
Thirteen birders heard and saw the following forty-two species of birds:
Canada Goose
Northern Pintail
Common Merganser
