Parksville/Qualicum Beach tuesday bird walk, June 01, 2010

Willow Flycatcher: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Top Bridge Trail in Parksville. The morning was cloudy and windy, but there was no rain and we did have a few sunny periods. We had great looks at Willow Flycatchers throughout the morning. A large flock of Bald Eagles and Turkey Vultures soared high over Little Mountain. We watched families of Chestnut-backed Chickadees, Bushtits and Red-breasted Nuthatches feeding their young. We heard a MacGillivray's Warbler singing close by and then got a good look at him. There was a Black-throated Gray Warbler gleaning insects high up in a Cedar tree.

Fourteen birders including two visiting birders from Wales saw and heard the following thirty-five species of birds:
Canada Goose
Turkey Vulture
Bald Eagle
Spotted Sandpiper
Black Swift
Rufous Hummingbirdbird
Northern Flicker
Willow Flycatcher
Pacific-slope Flycatcher
Cassin's Vireo
