This afternoon I headed out to Weed Lake, a short drive east of the city near the town of Langdon. There had been reports of Black-crowned Night Heron, which would be a new bird for me. This lake is also a decent spot for shorebirds. As it turns out, with relatively high water levels in so many places in the province, there was much to be seen. Here a few digiscoped images.
See how many species you can see in this photo (click to enlarge). I put my answers at the bottom of this post, if you have any additions or subtractions to my list PLEASE let me know in the comments.
Lastly, I was able to get some video of some dowitchers doing their trademark sewing maching impersonation and will post it as soon as I have it uploaded. Stay tuned!
