It was cool morning, about 12 degrees Celsius, when we started the BPQ walk at the Technopark in Ville Saint-Laurent. There were 27 of us and we saw 45 species of birds.



Paul and I saw a baby Pied-billed Grebe in the middle of the pond. By the time I got my camera ready, it sank underwater and I we couldn’t find where it resurfaced.

An American Robin landed on branch near me.

A Spotted Sandpiper landed in front of me. By the time I was ready, it had gone behind the grass. All I got was this.
