You have reached my blog on Mourning and MacGillivray's Warblers. I will be posting materials from my field research each summer. This year I was in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. I will also post materials related to my Ornithology BI 347 course during each spring Semester including day lists from our labs this year.

13-14 July 2013, Alberta: Calgary – Cypress Hills Provincial Park
13-14 July 2013,
Alberta: Calgary – Cypress Hills Provincial Park
This stop was the last attempt to collect songs from
MacGillivray’s Warblers.I spent the
morning of 14 July 2013 trying to find singing males in the provincial
park.I found one male on the
way.Even though there was plenty of
good breeding habitat, it appeared that the territorial and courtship phase of the
breeding season is over.The birding in
the park was outstanding and lead to the diverse list of birds below.I also was able to capture some video of an American White Pelican and while driving through Saskatchewan, the
Lark Bunting (see below).
