The Saskatoon Nature Society organizes an annual walk in President Murray Park on Grey Cup Sunday. Stan and Jan Shadick were the leaders and did a fabulous job of finding birds for everyone to view. About 20 people wandered the park and would gather together if someone spotted an interesting bird. Jan was the super finder and was the first to spot a Brown Creeper, a Golden-crowned Kinglet and a Merlin that was chowing down on a House Sparrow. Here are my images of some of the birds seen.
This Golden-crowned Kinglet is actually from the day before. We did see one but I didn’t get a good picture of it.
I have been looking for the last month for a Brown Creeper and was delighted when Jan spotted this one.
Note the great camouflage coloration.
A flock of about 10 Pine Siskin landed in a tree where the Merlin was eating.
This Merlin had captured a House Sparrow and was busy plucking and eating.
And a female House Finch to finish the afternoon.
