- Hi, Bernard. Thanks! and thank goodness for Bob L (and others who've corrected me as a budding "second year starting my third" birder) that the dowitcher video is really Stilt Sandpipers!
The camera is an older one (2 years being "old" in this day and age of obsolescence in electronics)- a Canon Power Shot SX40 HS.

- Hi Everyone
Sandra Savage here - Bill and Sonia's daughter - visiting for a few mainly non-birding days and I wanted to report some highlights.
A trip to the Goose Lake area yesterday yielded good numbers of yellowlegs and dowitchers, with appearances by Pectoral, Solitary, and Semipalmated Sandpipers. Of delight was a single Black-bellied Plover.
Driving around that area, we also saw a Red-tailed hawk, Krider's Subspecies - sorry, no photo as it flew while I tried to get a photo.
Today, in the yard, a male Canada Warbler kept me company for an entire minute, maybe more!!
At the weir in Saskatoon, we watched a Spotted Sandpiper catch a decent-sized minnow and then put it down on the pavement to turn it around and then eat it. Closer to the Mendel Art Gallery, a juvenille Gray Catbird on the pathway and then drinking from a puddle, and, a bit further on, an adult Gray Catbird.
(Calgary) temporarily Saskatoon
