Nanaimo bird report, July 15, 2018 (1 Viewer)

The Sunday bird walk went to Buttertubs Marsh in Nanaimo.
The morning was sunny and very hot!
We saw several Pied-billed Grebes with one sitting on a nest. We watched a female Wood Duck swimming on the marsh with three small chicks not far from us. We heard Common Yellowthroats singing throughout the morning. Bald Eagles and Turkey Vultures flew high over head. Two Orange-crowned Warblers entertained us just off the trail. A Bewick’s Wren was spotted on a snag next to the trail.
Seventeen birders including visiting birders from California and Utah saw and heard the following twenty-nine species:
Canada Geese
