Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, June 08, 2010

Chestnut-backed Chickadee: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Shelly Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville.
The morning was mostly sunny and the wind was calm. The forest was filled with the sounds of spring.
We saw and heard a large number of Chestnut-backed Chickadee families feeding their young throughout the morning. The Willow Flycatchers were perching and singing on the lower bushes near the meadows, giving us good views as they put their heart into their songs. We spotted Savannah Sparrows flycatching from the short snags in the meadows. There were Pacific-slope Flycatchers singing from high up in the Fir trees throughout the morning. We watched as a Barred Owl was flushed from it's perch by an American Robin.

Canada Goose
Great Blue Heron
