I traipsed around for a good five hours with a break at Tim Horton’s midday. The walk there was not wasted as I saw a Northern Rough Winged Swallow on the way and a Lazuli Bunting on the return. Birding is difficult at Police Point and it took some time to see anything other than Gray Catbird, Yellow Warbler and Magpies. With some luck I managed to see singing Warbling Vireo, Dusky Flycatcher, Song Sparrow and House Wren which were all lifers. I managed to check songs on my e-Sibley Guide on my i-phone to confirm my sightings. On the River there were 2 American White Pelicans to finish the list of lifers. I had great views of Northern Flicker on the adjacent Golf Course and a flyover accipiter which I guess was a Cooper’s Hawk (later confirmed by Tim).
This was a useful day which allowed me to bird and take some photos which I have uploaded onto Facebook. Next stop Waterton!
Day total – 30 at PP with a further 15 at Suffield.
Lifers – 7
