NMT - March 2009

Wood Duck

March 2009
Species list: 9 / Distance travelled: 56 kilometres

            Though the numbers of species and kilometres were low for this month, I did enjoy seeing the beginning of spring with Turkey Vulture, Violet-green Swallow, Yellow-rumped Warbler and Rufous Hummingbird. A worthwhile trek out to Morningstar Pond, near French Creek, with Emily and Nolan, produced a much needed Wood Duck. A Northern Harrier, near Nanoose, made for another worthwhile trip to the infamous Ugly Dwarf farm fields in Parksville.
