Parksville/Qualicum Beach, Tuesday bird walk, June 14, 2011





















Swainson's Thrush: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Beaver Ponds at Nanoose Bay. The morning was cloudy with a cool wind.
We spotted Black Swifts flying high overhead. There were several male Rufous Hummingbirds doing their courting dives throughout the morning. A Willow Flycatcher was perched near the Beaver Ponds giving us great views. We heard Swainson's Thrush singing throughout the morning. Pacific-slope Flycatchers and a Cassin's Vireo were singing close by. We saw and heard the Black-headed Grosbeak high up in the top of a conifer tree.

Eight birders saw and heard the following twenty-nine species of birds:
Mallard
Turkey Vulture
Bald Eagle
Black Swift
Rufous Hummingbird
