A Pied-billed Grebe turned up on Policeman’s Creek and stuck around long enough for a few good photos. In other news, we leave for Texas soon! Keep your eyes peeled for updates on Reddish Egrets, Green Jays, Caracaras and more as the trip progresses.
A couple photos from a recent trip eat of Calgary – we got a GGOW, 5 Snowies, 10 Shorties and a Long-eared!
Migration is at full flow here in the Bow Valley, and naturally the robins are beginning to form worms. I caught this young bird at a bridge in Larch, part of a 50 strong flock.
Not much around recently, so here’s a Wilson’s Phalarope from a while ago. They are simply so photogenic!
A new wave of migrants hit the Bow Valley recently, some of the highlights being FOY Dusky Flycatcher, American Avocet, Northern Waterthrush and returning Barn Swallows. One of the less flashy new arrivals was this Greater Yellowlegs, which turned up at the Martin Stables yesterday.
As the waves of migration continue to slosh across Alberta, I found my FOY (first-of-year) Yellow-rumped Warbler on Policeman’s Creek.
