Dundee (Réserve Nationale de Faune du Lac Saint-François)

Turkey Vulture

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.
