Curiosity takes me to late August birding
Curious to know what types of birds would be left in Kelowna at the end of August, I stopped at a few locations on the way to the airport to pick up my son. My garden has definitely become quieter, but finches are still at the feeder, along with grey catbirds. A group of bohemian waxwings visited for a few days, but sadly I was not able to get a good picture.
I revisited Munson Pond to find plenty of Canada Geese and doves by the droves.
At Robert Lake, I didn’t see any of my favourite Wilson’s Phalarope or any other shorebirds actually. The gulls were plentiful, as were the geese and various types of ducks.
My last stop was Chichester Bird Sanctuary which apparently hosts the largest number of species of any single site in Kelowna. I was running a bit short on time but did manage to see a few new (to me) birds, and a number of Western Painted Turtles lounging on a log.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day!
