It was another great morning for bird watching today. The sun was shining. The sky was blue. The temperature was in the single digits. It was about 6 degrees Celsius and it got warmer as the morning progressed. I went to the BQP walk at the Réserve Nationale de Faune du Lac Saint-François near Dundee. There were 15 birders and very few birds about.
At the start of the walk we saw an American Crow and some White-tailed Deer in the distance.
There were Grey Catbirds and Yellowthroats hiding in brush. Wayne found a Scarlet Tanager molting to his fall plumage. He was hopping around the branches and leaves and finally into the open.
There were a few Canada Geese flying. Around mid-morning several flocks flew overhead.
We noticed three Turkey Vultures riding the thermals in the area. At one point they majestically glided overhead.
I leave you with this Goldenrod in the sunshine.
That all for today’s walk.
Est numquam etiam nuper committitur Birding.
