Tuesday Bird Walk
On June 18 the Tuesday bird walk went to Springwood Park in Parksville. The morning was sunny and winds light. Highlight of the walk was watching three American Kestrels in the field of Coldwater road. Also was able to observe a Willow Flycatcher and Chipping Sparrow in the same area. There were plenty of songs and calls happening on the walk through the woods with Swainson’s Thrush, Warbling Vireos and Orange-crowned Warblers.
