The Sunday bird walk went to Neck Point Park in Nanaimo.. The morning was cloudy with a strong wind off the Strait of Georgia. We spotted several
Double-crested Cormorants and Pelagic Cormorants flying over the Strait. Three female Surf Scoters were seen heading down the strait. A Harlequin Duck was seen resting near Shack Island. We had great views of a Pigeon Guillemot just off shore.
Eighteen birders including a visiting birder from St. Albert, Alberta saw and heard the following thirty-one species:

Parksville/Qualicum Beach Tuesday Bird Walk, June 19, 2018:
The Tuesday bird walk went the Plummer Road side of the Englishman River Estuary in Parksville. The morning was sunny with calm winds. We heard and then saw a Willow Flycatcher perched at the top a tall bush. Bright yellow American Goldfinch dotted the bushes beside the river. Turkey Vultures and Bald Eagles were seen high over head during the walk. We spotted a Spotted Sandpiper perched on a rock near the river. A very large flock of Canada Geese were resting along the shore of the river. A Common Loon, a Marbled Murrelet and two Pigeon Guillemots were seen heading up the Strait of Georgia. Swainson's Thrush, a Hammond’s Flycatcher and a Pacific-slope Flycatcher were heard singing on the walk. A flock of Band-tailed Pigeons, several Eurasian-collared Doves and a flock of Rock Pigeons flew over. A Mink entertained us as it ran along the shore line and swam just off shore, giving us great views!
Thirteen birders saw and heard the following forty-five species:
