15 June 2013, McBride, British Columbia

McBride, British Columbia
15 June 2013

It was a very successful but trying morning in McBride along Mountain View Rd. where I recorded 15 males.  This town used to rely on logging as a major industry but the logging is over and there is not a lot of disturbed habitat in the area anymore.  The road is located along the Fraser River and contained some of the best opportunities for recording.  I came upon 3 Turkey Vultures perched on some rocks near an old gravel pit and took some video.  One bird stretched out its wings for a good view of its classic field marks.  I later spent some time at Horseshoe Lake and took some video of waterfowl while eating dinner.
