Birding at Springbrook.

      Our Saturday morning bird group travelled to springbrook Alberta. On the south side of Springbrook is a 160 acre natural area. About 25 % is wetland and the rest is grass and bush. 

      There were many birds in the area. The trees were full of birds but you know that with all the leaves at this time the little beggars are hard to see. We did see yellow warblers, house wrens, song sparrow, clay colored sparrow, robins and chickadees.

     The wetlands had coots with young ones, There was a pied billed grebe and two duck species.
  
      There  are about 5 km of gravel trails. this place is a jewel.
