It was a sunny and cool morning about 12 degrees Celcius for a walk. BPQ organized an outing to Lacs Fauvel & Boisé in Blainville. These were old quarries which have been turned in to lakes. There were 27 of us walking and looking at the flora and fauna. We saw and or heard 43 species of birds today. I managed to get a few shots. I missed the Red-shouldered Hawk flying (very high) over us.
Here are some photos from today’s walk.
There were many Mallard ducks on the far shore of the lake. I got some flying by.
and one just standing.
There were quite few Eastern Kingbirds around.
Eastern Phoebe posing for us.
There were some woodpeckers in the woods. A yellow-bellied Sapsucker landed on the tree near me.
Juvenile Northern Flicker
We saw Green Herons flying around and some were on trees. I missed 2 Great Blue Herons taking off.
We spotted a Black-and-White Warbler.
There were American Robins and Black-capped Chickadees here and there
and a few American Goldfinches
We saw a Viceroy Butterfly (a Monarch butterfly mimic)
and lots of American Painted Lady Butterflies.
The were both orange and we had a short lesson on the differences.
That all for today’s walk.
