Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, April 26, 2011


Red-tailed Hawk: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to Springwood Park in Parksville. The morning was mostly sunny with a few clouds and calm winds. A male Anna's Hummingbird perched next to the trail giving us nice views at the beginning of the walk. We heard three Cassin's Vireos singing in the forest. We watched as four Red-breasted Nuthatches played on a tall conifer tree. Several Townsend's Warblers moved about high up in the Alder Trees. Throughout the morning we saw Orange-crowned Warblers gleaning insects and Yellow-rumped Warblers flycatching. A Red-tailed Hawk was perched on the big hydro lines for a good part of the morning. Our hearts were warmed by the sight of a female Mallard slowing crossing the road with ten Mallard Chicks following closly behind.
Eighteen birders saw and heard the following thirty-five species of birds:
