Tuesday bird walk, June 05,2012

**************************************************************************************************** Willow Flycatcher: Ralph Hocken. *************************************************************************************************** The Tuesday bird walk went to the Shelly Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville. The early morning was cloudy with misty rain and cool but it warmed up as the morning progressed. The big sighting of the morning was two fledging Barred Owls who were very fluffy and lacking tails. One adult Barred Owl perched not far from the trail, watching over them. We heard and saw several Willow Flycatchers throughout the morning. There were a large number of Savannah Sparrows perched on the low bushes on the meadows near the R.V. Park. **************************************************************************************************** Thirteen birders saw and heard the following fifty-one species. Canada Goose Mallard Common Merganser White-winged Scoter Pacific Loon Double-crested Cormorant Great Blue Heron Turkey Vulture Bald Eagle Merlin Barred Owl Killdeer California Quail Marbled Murrelet Mew Gull California Gull Glaucous-winged Gull Band-tailed Pigeon Eurasian-collared Dove Anna's Hummingbird Rufous Hummingbird Belted Kingfisher Northern Flicker Downy Woodpecker Northwestern Crow Common Raven Barn Swallow Violet-green Swallow Chestnut-backed Chickadee Red-breasted Nuthatch Bewick's Wren Pacific Wren Swainson’s Thrush American Robin Cedar Waxwing European Starling Warbling Vireo Orange-crowned Warbler Yellow Warbler Willow Flycatcher Pacific-slope Flycatcher Brewer’s Blackbird Spotted Towhee Chipping Sparrow Savannah Sparrow Song Sparrow White-crowned Sparrow Dark-eyed Junco Brown-headed Cowbird House Finch American Goldfinch **************************************************************************************************** Gppd birding Neil Robins Parksville British Columbia
