Turdus migratorius – not!

We just returned from spending New Years with my brother’s family in Calgary. I, of course, took a couple hours off from visiting to walk along the Bow River in Carburn Park. I cannot visit my brother and not go for a walk through this beautiful park which stretches for about a kilometer or so along the Bow River. You are virtually guaranteed to see a lot of wildlife, including deer, numerous species of ducks, Bald Eagles, and Canada Geese. You might even see an owl or porcupine if you look real hard. Well this afternoon I even saw two robins who, not living up to there scientific name, have decided to brave an Alberta winter! They let me approach quite close and you can see it’s puffed itself up for insulation.
