Parksville/Qualicum Beach, Tuesday bird walk, June 28, 2011




















Warbling Vireo: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Top Bridge Trail in Parksville. The morning
was cloudy but warm. We saw a Yellow-rumped Warbler on an Arbutus Tree. Black
Swifts flew high over head at the start of the walk and Willow Flycatchers were
seen perched and singing on the top of bushes at the start of the walk and again
at the end of the walk. We saw two Warbling Vireos low in the bushes. There was
a Yellow Warbler perched and singing in a big leaf maple.

Fifteen birders saw and heard the following thirty-six species of birds:
Turkey Vulture
