- Aug 24, 2011We did a Rosthern to Wakaw drive yesterday and were also surprised at the great many young broods seen during the trip ... highlights included a Ruddy Duck hen with seven young ones and over seventy-five American Pelicans resting on a small spit of land into a slough.

I'm afraid my Morning Dove abandoned her nest too. I even tried to catch her on the nest at night. The nest is too high to check for eggs, unless I find a 16 foot step ladder.
Some birds that were regular summer residents weren't here this summer, but passed through recently. Eastern Phoebes and Cedar Waxwings in particular. I'm seeing a lot of very young ducks now. They should have been that size a month or two ago. Coots are everywhere. One Hummingbird buzzed by yesterday.
