I decided to head over to Maskepetoon Park again today now that it has cooled off substantially. I invited my friend Gary Kuiken to come along this morning and the two of us headed out just as the sun was coming up. The wind chill was -15°C so we bundled up with lots of layers. We had a great walk through the woods and emerged along the Red Deer River. We then followed it for a bit and saw quite a number of ducks, which were being harassed by a Bald Eagle, and we even saw a shorebird. Unfortunately I didn’t get a very long look at the shorebird, so I came away without an identification. I would think that this sighting would by the latest I have ever seen any shorebird sticking around in the fall.
