We recently went out to Dawson Creek to see the Mandarin Duck that has been reported. Torn as to whether or not its a "real" county bird, we decided to count it since we are using e-bird for our listing and e-bird lets us count it. We saw the boring female back in some cattails. Bird #175.
Yesterday at Hagg Lake:
On the way home we saw two giant flocks of Cackling Geese. We estimated 5000 in this flock. I wish my collage could do it justice. (click on it to enlarge)
