You Saw Whet?

Bird nerds notes
The end of the season brings about mixed feelings. On one hand we're seeing some really neat birds; on the other hand the quantity of birds is much lower. A highlight was spotting a saw-whet owl in daylight up close in Brown Lowery Provincial Park. Another highlight was spotting a Towsend's warbler before the end of season at wedge pond. Chances are we won't see many more warblers this season.
First sightings (lifers) 3x
- Baird's sandpiper
- Saw-whet owl
- Townsend's warbler
Even though they're not rare, seeing a saw-whet owl in the daytime is a feat of birding.
We were sitting on the shore of Weed Lake when this young night heron landed meters away.
The Towsend's warbler is a Bird Nerds' fav and we felt lucky to spot this one in Kananaskis.
We haven't seen too many Brown Creepers but we spotted this one in Brown Lowery.
