Parksville/Qualicum beach Tuesday bird walk, June 04, 2013

The Tuesday bird walk went to Springwood Park in Parksville. The morning was sunny and warm, although it was a little cooler in the forest.
Two Cedar Waxwings greeted us at the start of the walk. We spotted a flock of Black Swifts dancing in the sky chasing insects. We heard Orange-crowned Warblers, Yellow Warblers, Black-throated Gray Warblers, MacGillivray's Warbler and Wilson's Warblers singing during the walk.  We heard and then saw a Willow Flycatcher perched on top some low bushes close to the road hawking insects from the perch. There was a Northwestern Crow and a Sharp-shinned Hawk mobbing an Red-tailed Hawk high above us. We heard and saw a Common Yellowthroat singing from a perch on Scotch Broom close to the road.  Near the end of the walk a noisy flock of American Robins were mobbing a Great Horned Owl.
