Glad you are able to get out more now, Rob!
I was out on a drive yesterday for a little birdwatching -- started at the Kelowna Landfill, made my way up Glenmore road toward Lake Country ... turned down to go to Carr's Landing and then followed Commonage Road up almost to Vernon. There is a road there called Bench Road that goes back toward Okanagan Lake -- we stopped and walked through the "Experimental Forest." We loosely counted about 40 species on this trip. I was able to capture this (a lot better) picture of a Yellow-headed Blackbird to replace my previous one.
These guys are hanging out on the West side of the landfill at the commercial entrance. Several bald eagles, red-wing blackbirds, ravens, gulls, ducks also in this area.
One of the places we stop on this drive is Kopje Regional Park near Carr's Landing. It gives you shore access to see the island where the Seagulls nest. There's always some odd bird there -- two years ago, saw some Caspian Terns hanging with the gulls. Nothing new this year.
Another place we stop is a small lake (called Rose's lake) on Commonage Road (across from the Regional Compost plant (phew)). Always good for Common Mergansers and two or three species of swallows. Here's your male/female photo, Judy. haha.
The Tree Swallow is nesting here -- the wind was really blowing yesterday, but I was able to capture this guy hanging on for dear life -- know you already have this one Zach ...
At the Experimental Forest, we saw several different species ... a great location. We walked through and along the back fence. The birds couldn't wait to pose for us. lol. Here's a House Wren
(at least I contributed one new bird). haha.
We saw Bluebirds, Bullock's Orioles, Swallows, Wood Pewees, Wrens, Vesper/Savannah Sparrows and several other species.
Savannah Sparrow. (Sorry for a few duplicates, Zach)
If you are in the area, I recommend that drive -- always good for birds any time of day.
