Tuesday Bird Walk
On July 30th the Tuesday Bird Walk went to the Little Qualicum River Hatchery. The morning was overcast with the odd sprinkle and the winds were light. A few highlights from the walk were a singing Yellow Warbler, Yellow-rumped Warbler and a Black-throated Gray Warbler all seen in one spot. We also saw 7 Turkey Vultures soaring across the sky while watching Black Swifts feeding. Our parking lot bird was seeing 2 American Dippers in the river.
