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.
There were many Yellow Warblers flying around.
In the distance, over the airport, we saw an American Kestral hovering.
At a pond near the airport, we saw Mallards and babies.
I spotted a duck flying over and landing in the far end of the pond. It is a Green-winged Teal.
Here is a Green-winged Teal and a Mallard next to each other.
Lots of Red-winged Blackbirds.
Many Tree Swallows.
There were a few Green Herons flying around. Someone mentioned that there were 3 nesting pairs in the area.
We found a Gray Catbird.
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.
Quite a few Song Sparrows were singing.
There were about 15 to 20 Cedar Waxwings in a small area.
That all for today’s walk.
