Columbia Beach and Englishman River Estuary Birding


American Kestrel: Ralph Hocken Photo.

Hi birders,

I went birding with two birders visiting from Ontario today, among the highlights was seeing a Sharp-shinned Hawk being mobbed by a American Kestrel while a Merlin was perched at the top of a tall snag. We also had great views of a Cassin's Vireo on a low bush not far from us at the Shelly Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville. We saw Heermann's Gull at the gravel bar at Pebble Beach.
