Since we became birders a major hope of ours has been to see a Blackburnian warbler. It's not very common and it only shows up in a small part of Alberta. This was our fifth trip to Cold Lake and we finally had an undisputable sighting! It was an instant highlight of our birding careers.

We love going to Cold Lake because it's so natural and remote. We will keep going there for sure. At the end of this trip we spent a night in Sir Winston Chruchill Provincial Park which was also spectacular.
