Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, June 12, 2012

************************************************************************************************************************************************* Wilson’s Warbler: Ralph Hocken Photo. ***************************************************************************************************************************************************** The Tuesday bird walk went to the Beaver Ponds at Nanoose Bay. The morning was cloudy with light rain and calm winds. We had great looks at a Townsend’s Warbler feeding and singing in a tall tree. We watched another Townsend’s Warbler feeding along the trail just ahead of us. A Hooded Merganser gave us an unusual sighting as it peered out of its tree cavity nest, high up in a snag just off the trail. We saw several Willow Flycatchers perched and singing and then fly catching. We heard and then saw an Orange-crowned Warbler and a McGillivray's Warbler in some Arbutus Trees. Overhead a flock of Black Swifts were hawking insects.*********************************************************************************************************** Eight birders heard and saw the following thirty-four species: Hooded Merganser Turkey Vulture Bald Eagle Black Swift Anna’s Hummingbird Rufous Hummingbird Northern Flicker Willow Flycatcher Pacific-slope Flycatcher Warbling Vireo Northwestern Crow Common Raven Purple Martin Violet-green Swallow Chestnut-backed Chickadee Red-breasted Nuthatch Bushtit Brown Creeper Bewick’s Wren Swainson's Thrush American Robin Orange-crowned Warbler Yellow-rumped Warbler Black-throated Gray Warbler Wilson’s Warbler Townsend’s Warbler McGillivray's Warbler Spotted Towhee Song Sparrow Dark-eyed Junco Brown-headed Cowbird Black-headed Grosbeak Purple Finch House Finch American Goldfinch ********************************************************************************************************************************************************** Good birding Neil Robins Parksville British Columbia
