I went for an evening walk at Ile Bizard nature park with BPQ members. It was a beautiful spring evening about 17 degrees Celcius and sunny. We saw and heard 37 species of birds. Also some tadpoles and frogs. A muskrat and a turtle.
American Red Squirrel
Northern Roughed-winged Swallow

Tree Swallows were all over the marsh.
Swallows on a tree.
There was a Red-shouldered Hawk in the distance.
There were Mallards.
Swamp Sparrows singing in the reeds. We saw a Marsh Wren fly by and disappear in to the reeds.
We were looking at a Great Blue Heron in the reeds. After a while it flew out of the reeds, landed on a branch, and looked at the sunset.
As the sun was setting, we spotted a Northern Flicker.
That all for today’s walk.
