Sunday Showcase: Birds of the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary

Yesterday I posted Tony LePrieur’s photos of the damage at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, and some of the birds he saw there. Here are more of his shots of birds at the sanctuary, all taken in early June 2014.

  1. Spotted what looked like a pair of Great Egret close to the zoo bridge @ 6:15 tonight. Have a photo but not downloaded yet. Do they come into this area often? I thought they were a southern bird.

    • They are quite rare in southern Alberta. Usually only single birds have been seen in wetlands here. Would be very unusual to see two anywhere, especially in the city. Were they white? Send the photo if you can.
