Migratory Birds on Vancouver Island

We have so many migratory birds in town now......this is an Orange Crowned Warbler above....

These seem to be Grey-headed Orange Crowned Warblers here.

Then below we have Yellow Rumped Warblers.

More Yellow Rumped Warblers in the ocean spray that is so lovely right now.

This is a Pacific Slope Flycatcher above.

Here we have the amazing Townsend Warblers...they are so unique with their masks.

More Townsend Warblers.

Groups of Bushtits are covering the ocean spray also.

And another Pacific Slope Flycatcher below. Hope your week is wonderful. Cheers.

And the Steller's Jays are back in town also.
