I’m sorry I haven’t published more posts lately but between helping with harvest, retraining a horse, getting ready for a house guest, and most importantly school, I haven’t much time! My daily birding walks have also fallen by the wayside, but birds there are aplenty since I live in a migration pathway. Almost every day there’s a steady stream of Snow, Canada, and Greater White-fronted Geese flying overhead, along with Lapland Longspurs and Horned Larks.
Last Friday I went out birding at the woods and slough across the road from our house to see what was around and also inspected the newly-completed beaver lodge.
Yellow-rumped Warblers are everywhere now, but they’ll soon be gone,
This is the first White-breasted Nuthatch I’ve seen in the woods,
Leaves are changing colors,
The beavers have three areas in the woods like this,
There are wood chips everywhere from all their work,
I saw this Common Yellowthroat, a first for my Alberta list,
A Northern Harrier just over the power line,
An Alberta sunset,
I will try to post more regularly and hope to go birding more often too!
