Ferruginous Hawk Near Regina Beach
- Today, I saw an adult light phase Ferruginous Hawk perched via scope at
roadside near Regina Beach.
For the last few years, we have had perhaps unusually late season activity
by Richardson's Ground Squirrels within several horse pastures near Lumsden
This somewhat distinctive plumage bird may be one of the single pair that
nests each year within the immediate area. There are also a few pairs also
found nesting at the north end of Last Mountain Lake near Nokomis.
This was an immaculate mostly cream colored bird with bright rusty leggings.
The back and shoulders were rusty tinged and the tail was a uniform cream
