I saw two flocks of Snow Buntings, totaling about 150 birds, in the fields of Caza’s Berry Farm, a few km south of Buckhorn, along Berrie Road. Each flock took flight, wheeled and landed at least once and it was evident that there were no Horned Larks or Longspurs present. Today there were two Bald Eagles, an adult and sub-adult, along Mt Julian – Viamede Road, north of Burleigh Falls, perhaps attracted by an unseen roadkill. Six or fewer Evening Grosbeaks continue to visit our bird feeder.
