The Sunday bird walk went to Bowen Park in Nanaimo. The morning was sunny and very hot but much cooler in the forest!
A MacGillivray’s Warbler was seen high up in a tall tree near the trail at the start of the walk. We watched a Downy Woodpecker feeding on the trunks of a tree close by, giving us great views. We saw several Brown Creepers climbing up the trunks of trees throughout the morning. We heard Northern Flickers, a Pileated Woodpecker and a Red-breasted Sapsucker during the walk.
Twenty-three birders saw and heard the following eighteen species:
Friday, August 03:
An Evening Grosbeak was seen on a Garry Oak in Nanoose Bay.
Monday, July 30:
A Great Horned Owl was seen at Neck Point Park in Nanaimo.
Seven Spotted Sandpipers were seen along Sunset Beach at Neck Point Park in Nanaimo.
