Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, May 17, 2011


MacGillivray's Warbler: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincial Park in Parksville. The morning started out cool, but soon became sunny and warm making a great morning to bird. The highlights included hearing and then seeing a MacGillivray's Warbler perched and singing on the top of bushes along the trail not far from us. We watched as a Caspian Tern hovered and then dived into the ocean just past the shore line for about twenty minutes.
Fourteen birders, including two visitors from New Zealand, saw and heard the following forty-one species of birds:
Brant
Mallard

Cooper's Hawk
