Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, Tuesday May 22, 2012

Wilson's Warbler: Ralph Hocken Photo.
*************************************************************************** The Tuesday bird walk went to Lot Ten off Kinkade Road in north Qualicum Beach. ********************************************* *************The morning was cloudy and cool with rain showers. We saw and heard Black-headed Grosbeaks as they added rich tones to the birdwalk. We had great looks at a Western Wood-Pewee as he perched in an Alder Tree and then flew about catching insects. A Hammond's Flycatcher also perched and gave us good views so we were able to identify it without it's song. We hear a Pacific-slope Flycatcher singing throughout the morning. We had several good looks at Wilson's Warblers as they were sang and were feeding on the lower bushes. The Red-breasted Sapsuckers put on a dazzling show as they moved across the Little Qualicum River---one being chased by a Wilson's Warbler. ******************************************************************************************** Ninteen birders saw and heard the following forty-three species: Canada Goose Turkey Vulture Bald Eagle Sharp-shinned Hawk Cooper's Hawk Spotted Sandpiper Glaucous-winged Gull Band-tailed Pigeon Eurasian-collared Dove Rufous Hummingbird Belted Kingfisher Red-breasted Sapsucker Downy Woodpecker Northern Flicker Western Wood-Pewee Hammond's Flycatcher Pacific-slope Flycatcher Warbling Vireo Red-eyed Vireo Northwestern Crow Common Raven Violet-green Swallow Chestnut-backed Chickadee Red-breasted Nuthatch Pacific Wren Swainson's Thrush American Robin European Starling Cedar Waxwing Orange-crowned Warbler Yellow Warbler Black-throated Gray Warbler Wilson's Warbler Western Tanager Spotted Towhee Chipping Sparrow Song Sparrow Dark-eyed Junco Black-headed Grosbeak Brewer's Blackbird Brown-headed Cowbird Pine Siskin House Sparrow ***************************************************************** Good birding Neil Robins Parksville British Columbia
