The Sunday bird walk went to the Nanaimo River Estuary in south Nanaimo. The morning was cloudy and quite warm.
We spotted a Peregrine Falcon perched high up in a very tall conifer tree at the start of the walk. Two Greater Yellowlegs were seen along the shore of the river and two more were seen feeding on the estuary not far from the trail. A pair of Western Sandpipers landed in a pond very close to us. A Red-tailed Hawk was seen in a tall tree next to the Estuary. A very large flock of Barn Swallows flew overhead hawking insects for most of the morning. Many Common Ravens and Northwestern Crows entertained us all morning.
Eleven birders including a visiting birder from Toronto and two visitors from California saw and heard the following twenty-five species:
Canada Geese
Green-wing Teal
Great Blue Heron
Common Merganser
Bald Eagle
Peregrine Falcon
Red-tailed Hawk
Turkey Vulture
Greater Yellowlegs
Western Sandpiper
Glaucous-winged Gull
