This morning we headed off to one of our favourite mountain birding spots – Vermilion Lakes. It was an awesome morning and the lake was fairly calm. Long before we spotted this Common Loon, we heard it yodeling – the haunting vocalization it is so well known for.
Later in the afternoon, we went for a walk along Lake Minnewanka and spotted a bird rummaging around some bushes along the water’s edge. With patience, eventually the bird revealed itself on a rock and posed perfectly for us. Thank you Mr/Mrs. White-crowned Sparrow!
