Nanaimo bird report, February 21, 2012






















Yellow-rumped Warbler: Ralph Hocken Photo.

Hi birders,

The Tuesday bird walk went to the Harbour Quay and Somass Estuary in Port Alberni. The morning was cloudy with rain throughout the morning. The highlights at the Quay were three Red-throated Loons and a flock of Western Grebes. The big surprise of the morning was the sighting of a Yellow-rumped Warbler as we were walking along the water pipeline in the Somass Estuary.
We would like to say a special thanks to Sandy McRuer for inviting and guiding us to this great birding area. It turned out to be a marvellous morning of birding!
