The Red deer River Naturalists (RDRN) go on a birding field trip most Monday afternoons. They meet at the Kerry Wood Nature Center and carpool for the afternoon of birding.
Monday was a very cold day. Not many species were found. They did see house sparrows, black-billed magpies, common ravens, common red polls, hoary red polls. black-capped chickadees, snow buntings and a northern goshawk. The snow buntings have been seen on a large pile of grain for the last couple of weeks . it was estimated that there were about 150 birds. The goshawk was a complete surprise as they are normally not seen here in the winter.
