Parksville/ Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, June 19, 1012

*********************************************************************************************************************************** Red-tailed Hawk: Ralph Hocken Photo. ************************************************************************************************************************************************ The Tuesday bird walk went to the Top Bridge Trail in Parksville. The morning stated out cloudy and cool but finished up sunny and warm with calm winds—almost a summers morning! We saw Vaux’s Swifts, Black Swifts and Purple Martins high overhead throughout the morning. Two young Bald Eagles were playing footsy and swooping and diving very high overhead for a good five minutes. Chipping Sparrows were singing and feeding on the ground not far from us. Willow Flycatchers were in abundance as they sang and perched nearby. A Red-tailed Hawk circled low right above us giving us great views near the end of the walk. ***************************************************************************************************************************** Fourteen birders saw and hear the following forty-three species: Turkey Vulture Bald Eagle Coopers Hawk Red-tailed Hawk Killdeer Band-tailed Pigeon Rock Pigeon Vaux’s Swift Black Swift Rufous Hummingbird Downy Woodpecker Northern Flicker Pileated Woodpecker Willow Flycatcher Pacific-slope Flycatcher Hammond’s Flycatcher Warbling Vireo Red-eyed Vireo Northwestern Crow Common Raven Purple Martin Violet-green Swallow Chestnut-backed Chickadee Brown Creeper Swainson's Thrush American Robin Cedar Waxwing Orange-crowned Warbler Wilson’s Warbler MacGillivray’s Warbler Black-throated Gray Warbler Spotted Towhee Song Sparrow White-crowned Sparrow Chipping Sparrow Dark-eyed Junco Black-headed Grosbeak Brown-headed Cowbird Purple Finch American Goldfinch House Finch Pine Siskin ************************************************************************************************************************** The Tuesday bird walk on June 26 will be going to Lot Ten near the Little Qualicum River at Kinkade Road on the mountian side of highway 19a in Quilicum Beach. *************************************************************************************************************** Good birding!
