Quick Trip to Lake Superior and Surprise Western Meadowlark

Ken and I had a quick work trip up to the north of Sault Ste. Marie to do some bird surveys.  After finishing our surveys, Ken showed me a really neat spot in Lake Superior Provincial Park.  A beautiful secluded beach.  This is an area I would like to explore when I have more time!

As we were about to return the rental car earlier this afternoon, Ken with his excellent bird ears, picked out a Western Meadowlark singing in the grassed area between the runways at the Sault airport!  What an exciting find! We eventually tracked it down and got a few distant shots, this one was taken from inside the terminal!  A great end to a nice, short trip.

The Audio Visual Files: Alder Flycatcher

I've been testing out my video capabilities of my new Nikon P900.  I took this video of an Alder Flycatcher singing away up in Bruce County a couple of weeks ago and am fairly pleased with it.
