Due to circumstances beyond my control. I slept in and realized that couldn’t make the BPQ trip to Dundee. I decided to go to Centennial Park. It was a beautiful morning for walking and birding.
There were American Robins around the park.
A Pileated Woodpecker landed on tree next to me.
A little further along, he was looking at the fence. He flew over the fence and I couldn’t follow anymore.
It was a family reunion for the Red-winged blackbirds. There were lots of males calling out.
The females have arrived.
The juveniles have arrived too. They look like the females. You can see the red color on the shoulder.
A few Common Grackles are around.
I spotted 4 Double-crested Cormorants sitting in trees on an island across the lake.
A long the path, I heard the loud flapping of wings and got a shot of the Double-crested Cormorant taking off. I must have spooked it.
Further along, more flapping. I got this shot of a Canada Goose taking off. Oops, I did it again.
A little further, I found some Wood Ducks and Mallards swimming near the shore. A pair of male and female Wood Ducks.
This looks like a happy Mallard.
Spring is here. Flowers are starting to bloom.
That all for today’s walk.
Est numquam etiam nuper committitur Birding.
