Quite a bit quieter down at the Nanaimo River estuary this evening.
No American goldfinches, and just a handful of savannah sparrows - quite a contrast from yesterday.
Still good numbers of white-crowned sparrows, with a few golden-crowned, and a couple of Lincoln's sparrows around the large oak and platform areas.
Just the northern harrier (juv) and a merlin, raptor-wise. A single orange-crowned warbler was in the hawthorns, plus a couple of purple finches. Of course, northern flicker, spotted towhees, song sparrows, Bewick's wren and such were also seen, as usual.
A lesser yellowlegs and a belted kingfisher were on the river.
