Early birders

Spotted Sandpiper: Ralph Hocken Photo.

The bird walk went to the Shelly Road side of the Englishman River in Parksville. The morning was sunny and warm. We saw many Savannah Sparrows and Willow Flycatchers in the meadows. A female Northern Harrier flew over the meadows and then perched in a conifer tree for a long time. We spotted a pair of American Kestrels in the top of a tall conifer tree and the female Kestrel flew over just above us giving us great views. We spotted a Red-breasted Merganser, three Black-bellied Plovers, two Black Oystercatchers, three Caspian Terns, Mew Gulls and Glaucous-winged Gulls near the tide line.
