Spring Birds

I'm on call so stuck in town, and given the beautiful spring day we had, it was a good day to go search out birds at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. Among the finds...

White breasted nuthatch

Osprey (we saw a pair cruising the river being harassed by seagulls)

Flickers. We saw a male singing his heart out, then later saw him again being joined by a female, then later we saw them getting together to make little flickers...

Yellow rumped warblers (the Myrtle variety)

Downy and Hairy woodpeckers

Ducks making duck contrails

The rare Wood Ducks, which are an introduced species and only really found in Alberta in the vicinity of Inglewood.

And a pair of deer that seem to be blissfully accepting of humans.
