Osprey on nest with young
- I went down to the river (Diefenbaker)on the 31st and met up with some family for the day. My Uncle & Aunt had reported seeing a Osprey nest near the river in Douglas Park. Mom and I followed the directions and found the nest with two adult birds and one young which was still only coverd in fuzz.
After taking a lot of photo's we started are way back and found a slough with some shorbirds. Here's a list:
Long-billed Dowitcher - 24+ (heard them)
Pectoral Sandpiper - 1
Lesser Yellowlegs - several
Greater Yellowlegs - around 12
Stilt Sandpipers - 12
