    Activity #1: There are so many interesting birds on the Wall of Birds. I'm highlighting the Common Loon since it represents the sound of a summer visit to a local lake.  I particularly remember listening to the haunting call of the loon at night from our tent at Fish Lake, Alberta - truly magical! Activity #2: This week I've noticed the abundance of House Sparrows chirping outside.  Although they are a very common Songbird, their songs are a welcome sound in our backyard.  I've also seen a Downy Woodpecker visit a dead branch of our Mountain Ash to look for a tasty treat.  Lastly, I know there are a number of owls in our neighbourhood but have not yet seen them, but I'll be on the lookout for them! Activity #3: This week, for the first time, I observed a few family groups of White-winged Crossbills. It was fascinating to watch them select a spruce cone from the ground and then fly up with it to a spruce branch to eat their lunch.IMG_8781 copy
