Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday bird walk, September 25, 2012

                                          Steller's Jay: Ralph Hocken Photo.
The Tuesday bird walk went to the Shelly Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville. The morning was sunny with the feel of autumn in the air. The bird of the morning was the unusual sighting of a Black-and-White Warbler feeding on insects in a tree near the trail. Black and White Warblers are normally observed east of the Rockies and have only been sighted here on rare occasions. We saw and heard a Cassin’s Vireo feeding on a large bush near the trail. Both the Warbler and the Vireo co-operated and we were able to watch them both for a long period of time. A Steller’s Jay and a flock of Golden-crowned Sparrows were singing and feeding next to the trail. A Western Grebe and a Red-necked Grebe were seen just off shore at low tide.

Canada Geese
