On Mar. 12 the group went west of Red Deer to north of Sylvan Lake and then worked their way back to Red Deer.
|Route taken Mon afternoon.|
A Swainson's hawk and a European Starling were first sightings for 2011.
A number of other interesting sightings were made. A black billed magpie was seen carrying nesting material. A common raven was seen on a nest. A great horned owl was seen on a nest. Other sightings were Canada geese, Bohemian waxwings, downy woodpecker, black capped chickadee, three mature bald eagles, one immature bald eagle and 6 rough legged hawks.
So it was an interesting and productive afternoon.
