It was a cold (-17 degees Celsius) morning and sunny day for a walk in the Technoparc area. We toured the construction area and lamented what used to be there. We observed some avian activity. Joel led us on a lively and informative walk.

There were 2 male Red-winged Blackbirds way up a tall tree. In the distance, over the airport, we saw an aerial skirmish between a Harrier Hawk and a Rough-legged Hawk.

Next to road, we saw a Hairy Woodpecker. This was a teaching moment on how to identify a Downy and a Hairy Woodpecker.
