Gone to the Birds

We went to Morse, Saskatchewan again. We’ve been there many times before (see a previous post on my former blog). The main attraction is Reed Lake and its many thousands of nesting or migrant shorebirds.

It’s a shallow intermittent saline lake and it along with Chaplin and Old Wives lakes, are part of a Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network site – one of the most important inland sites for migratory birds in North America.American Avocet

This trip would not disappoint. There were hundreds, perhaps thousands of American Avocets.American Avocet

But there were also Marbled Godwits,Marbled Godwit

Willets, Phalaropes, and Franklin's Gulls - to name a few.Willet

We even caught a glimpse of a pair of Black-necked Stilts - a first for us. It was a good day to go to the birds!
