Birds along the coast and in the yards of our island homes, Vancouver Island.
A hawk up at Mount Tolmie. Could be a Cooper's Hawk. He flew in front of us trying to catch a bird but nearly flew into us. Also could be a Sharp-shinned.
Found a Yellow-headed Blackbird out near Island View Beach.
The Bushtits are common right now and also these little Bewick's Wrens
I am not good at knowing the shorebirds, this could be a White-winged scoter.
The Flycatchers have returned in great numbers.
I think this little one above is a bushtit.
Some of the Orange-crowned warblers have dark heads.
A hawk flew into the garden as we were sitting out. He flew around two feet from us several times trying to scare birds out of the berry bushes, he finally gave up as we were still there.
The Orange-crowned warblers like to hang upside down.
So many Orange-crowned warblers in town right now and up on Mount Tolmie.
We have Orange-crowned and Wilson's and Yellow-rumped warblers here in our area.
A White-crowned sparrow and a Wax Wing below.
This could be an Olive-sided Flycatcher. There are a few different Flycatchers here.
Well that is the week in birds. Hope your week is full of birds and fun. cheers, Nora
