- Yesterday morning at about 9:00 a.m. I saw a Say's Phoebe in Coventry Park (near 4th Ave. and Lewvan in Regina). A strange place for a bird I'd associate more with habitat on the fringe of the city. It's only the second time I've seen this species (my favorite local flycatcher) in my 13 years of birding in Regina (which may say more about my skills as a birder, or the extent to which I "get around", than it does about the relative abundance of the species).

- Hi All:
Just saw 1 Say's Phoebe and heard another, west of town along #18.
A pair of Wilson's Snipes flew out of a ditch as I was passing; 10 Marbled Godwits were resting at a small muddy slough.
There are two pairs of Common Loons on Rafferty.
1 pair of Mountain Bluebirds seem to be occupying a nest box near the west entrance to Roche P Park.
