August 30 2015
This week the Sunday bird-walk went to the Plummer rd. side of the
Englishman River Estuary and there was a possible sighting of a Northern
Waterthrush. There have been lots of reports of flocks of House Finch
visiting feeders this week in Nanaimo, and some sightings of Purple Finch
frequenting feeders in the past week.

There will be no bird walk September 6 2015 due to the Labour Day weekend
and on September 13 2015 the walk will be heading to Neck Point Park (meet
at the store at 9:00 am or in the Neck Point parking lot at approximately
9:10 am)

Happy birding!
