I'm still catching up on photos taken back in May, and will add a few other pics taken when ever I can sneak out after work for a few hours in the morning.
I have so many things going on this year, but I will continue to find time for this blog as I get such great feedback via the comments and in private emails.
The good thing about blogging, is that I can work on it from home and add photos before going to sleep, as some of you know I work nights and sleep ( although overrated ) is very important!
Since asking for ' bird alerts', I've had at least 10 emails per week from people within the Province with something 'strange' at their feeder , or in their yard or something they've spotted elsewhere, so I thank you too !
Its great to identify these birds , and help out folks who have an interest in what's 'out there'.
So, here are some new photos...
Long-billed Curlew - Always a treat to see this species, as they are in a bit of a decline in Saskatchewan. This one was spotted as the sun was going down during our bird count last month :
Red-tailed Hawk - This handsome raptor was flying over a local park last month :
Yellow Warbler - This territorial male was singing at a park here in town early one morning :
Ruddy Turnstone - A shorebird I don't often see. There were two of these on our bird count last month :
White-rumped Sandpiper - Not the most common sandpipers around. It's always a pleasure to see a group of these :
Black-necked Stilt - Another nice species to find any year, we found 8 of these graceful waders last month. I went back out there last week and got this shot :
Willet - And finally, this Willet was calling from atop his sentry post. I really should consider adding sound to this blog at some point, as he was giving quite the show :
