More Snowys

February 28, 2017

Lucky Jane got a Gyrfalcon on Rushmore Road on the 27th.  So after finishing our shopping at Costco, we drove over for a look.  Not surprisingly, several others were on the lookout too.  But we were all disappointed.  We had to make do with four Snowy Owls, one on Rushmore, one on Fallowfield, and two flying across Eagleson.

An Early Kingfisher

February 26, 2017

We went chasing a report of Greater White-fronted Geese on Eagleson near Hope Side Road in the storm water ponds.  Alas, we were not the only ones to be disappointed.  But a belted Kingfisher put on a good show for us.  In the back of the ponds, there was a small group of Hooded Mergansers.
