Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, May 03, 2011


Pacific-slope Flyatcher: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Top Bridge Trail in Parksville. It was a great morning for birding with sunny skies and calm winds. The highlights included seeing a Pacific-slope Flycatcher fly catching and gleaning insects. Several Chipping Sparrows perched on top of bushes along the trail entertaining us with their courting songs. A Hutton's Vireo showed up giving us looks. We spent most of the morning watching and hearing a large flock of Yellow-rumped Warblers that included both sub species of Myrtle and Audubon feeding on the ground and bushes along the trail at the top of the pond. We caught sight of a Lincoln's Sparrow perched on a short bush.

Eleven birders saw and heard the following forty-four species of birds:
