Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, April 20, 2010

Black-throated Gray Warbler: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Top Bridge Trail in Parksville. The morning was overcast, the winds were calm and dispute a couple of light showers it was a pleasant morning of birding.
We saw and heard our first Chipping Sparrow of the season feeding down on the ground with two American Robins. There was a mixed flock of Yellow-rumped Warblers, Black-throated Gray Warblers and Townsend's Warblers singing and feeding on the insects high up in some tall Big Leaf Maple Trees. We saw and heard Orange-crowned Warblers and Rufous Hummingbirds throughout the morning. A Turkey Vulture was perched at the top of a tall snag.

Eleven birders saw and head the following thirty-nine species of birds:
Canada Goose
Great Blue Heron
Turkey Vulture
Bald Eagle
Glaucous-winged Gull
Band-tailed Pigeon
Rufous Hummingbird
Downy Woodpecker
Northern Flicker

Good birding!
