Nice Cedar Waxwing, Judy ... I was sneaking up on you to post that one as well. haha.
I realized I'm way behind on updating the bird list! Sorry ... posting it next after this group of photos. My daughter has been here visiting and has been a good luck charm on birds.
First, here's the Mourning Dove
-- saw this lovely bird in Knox Mountain Park in Kelowna.
Was out looking for the elusive Sage Thrasher at White Lake Ecological Reserve near OK Falls and saw this Lazuli Bunting
instead (If someone has a nicer photo later, please post)...
At one point I really thought I had the Thrasher ... it was this Lark Sparrow ... not unhappy with it!
We swung by the Osoyoos Oxbows. That place always delivers! Here's a Yellow Warbler
Our next stop over was in Keremeos. What a beautiful valley through there. We saw both the Eastern and the Western Kingbirds
near the Red Bridge in Keremeos.
Back in West Kelowna, we saw this
hiking near Mt Boucherie (from the Eian Sanford parking lot).
Finally, we stopped at the Gellatly Regional Heritage Park ... so many different birds! However, most of them were posted ... except for this lovely little House Wren. The pair was there, but I just couldn't catch them both at once!
It's been an excellent week of Bird Watching for me ...
