Lots of Local Rare Birds to See Right Now: Birding here is GREAT!
The Big Excitement is the Redwing has returned to the same holly trees it was in last year at South Valley! I got to see it the other day. It was eating holly berries! The picture is from last year as I have not been able to get a picture this year.
The Pink-footed GEESE are still around the fields mostly over at Blenkinsop Lake. The Purple Sandpiper is still seen sometimes down at the rocks in Oak Bay off of Beach Drive. The Catbird has not been reported for a few days and is hiding in a private yard somewhere.
The Mockingbird is still being seen in Duncan. There is an American Black Duck at Beacon Hill Park, always there. In the Nanaimo Estuary there is a Slaty-backed GULL. Also reports of a white-winged Scoter and a Ring-billed GULL. I hope you like my pictures of the pinkies and you can see their pink legs and feet in some of them if you click for larger versions.
