I went to the BPQ summer outing to Sainte Martine. It was a nice morning for bird watching. There were many shore birds and ducks further out.
There was a Peregrine Falcon looking over things.
Plenty of Killdeer
and Lesser Yellowlegs
A few Solitary Sandpiper
A couple of Short/Longed Billed Dowitchers. We could not positively identify if this was a longed or short billed.
and some Least Sandpiper
Lots of activity
On the island, in the middle of the river, there were Great Blue Herons, Black-crowned Night Herons and an Egret. I could not get a shot of the Black-crowned Night Herons.
There some Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers in a shady tree. This is a shot of a Hairy Woodpecker.
We went Rang du 40 to see the Red-headed woodpecker. There it was perched on a fence post near the barn.
That all for today’s walk.
