On May 30th, a few members of the Birding Group were up bright and early in order to make a repeat visit to the Coal Creek trail by the road between Cumberland and Comox Lake. We were surrounded by bird calls/songs, but were frustrated by the season's proliferation of leaves and tall grasses and bulrushes and... the greenery was everywhere and ordinarily much appreciated, but it's sure hard to spot birds under those conditions! Still....with sharp eyes peering everywhere, we did manage to make some sightings: robins (of course!), Cedar Waxwings, Song Sparrows, Red-winged Blackbirds, Red-breasted Sapsuckers, Downy or Hairy Woodpecker, Mallard with half-grown duckling, Thrush, Crows, Brown Creeper and Hummingbird. The fun was in the search and we all enjoyed our time on the trail. A stop at the Grind Café in Cumberland nicely rounded off our outing. Do note the photos of the multiple sundogs which gave an interesting end to the morning for us.
