I was down in southern Alberta for the long weekend and basically just sighted a lot of Mourning Doves and heard a lot of Mourning Doves. For a good part of the weekend, it rained. It was cozy inside with my auntie. Walking the dog…early morning and in the quiet of evening, I loved the light and quiet of small town Magrath.
Back here at home, I’ve made visits to Frank’s Flats (the pond) and to the Bow River every day. I guess I’ve got some questions about some of the birds I’ve spotted.
High School biology students have been down at the edge of the pond, collecting leeches again. I’ve spoken to one of the Biology teachers…again mentioning that it isn’t the greatest of times for such activities, given that we have four Red Necked Grebe nests and a Black Crowned Heron nest, as well as countless other nests that are active. She told me that this year they made certain that they told the kids to protect and watch for bird nests. However, the way in which they were gallumphing about, the Red Winged Black birds were truly freaking. Damage done.
I’ll post some of my photos…some not very focused, but, keep in mind that I am a bird enthusiast…not so much a photographer.
