The Tuesday bird walk went to Springwood Park in Parksville. The morning was cloudy with light rain and calm winds. We watched as a pair of Bushtits entered their moving nest and settled inside. A Cooper’s Hawks flew over head screaming and then disappeared. Orange-crowned Warblers and Yellow-rumped Warblers were feeding high up in the big leaf maple trees throughout the morning. We heard many Black-throated Gray Warblers singing during the bird walk.
