Hi birders,

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Shelly Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville. The morning was sunny and warm with a strong breeze off the Strait of Georgia. We spotted a Black-throated Gray Warbler in with a flock of Chestnut-backed Chickadees in the trees near the trail. There was a large number of Lincoln's Sparrows, Savannah Sparrows and Cedar Waxwings along the edge of the meadows. Two young Western Tanagers gave us good looks from the low bushes along the trail. Ten Evening Grosbeaks flew over us at end of the walk.

Twenty-two birders including visiting birders from Victoria, Chicago and Turkey saw and heard the following thirty-three species of birds:
Canada Goose
American Wigeon
Common Merganser
Great Blue Heron
Turkey Vulture
Bald Eagle
Cooper's Hawk
California Gull
Glaucous-winged Gull
Anna's Hummingbird
Northern Flicker
Northwestern Crow
Common Raven
Eurasian Collared Dove
Chestnut-backed Chickadee
Red-breasted Nuthatch
Brown Creeper
Bewick's Wren
American Robin
Cedar Waxwing
Black-throated Gray Warbler
Western Tanager
Spotted Towhee
Savannah Sparrow
Song Sparrow
Lincoln's Sparrow
White-crowned Sparrow
Purple Finch
House Finch
American Goldfinch
Evening Grosbeak

Good birding
