Nanaimo bird report, July 09, 2017


Sunday Bird Walk, July 09, 2017:

The Sunday bird walk went to Linley Valley in Nanaimo. The morning was cloudy with calm winds. We were entertained by a Swainson's Thrush singing all morning and we spotted one calling from a branch near the trail. An Osprey flew over head just above us.  We heard a Cassin’s Vireo singing it’s unique tune just off the trail.  We saw a family of three Western Tanagers in a tall tree.  Common Yellow-throats were singing and we had great views of one near the lake.
