Mer Bleue Bog

On an early morning hike at Mer Bleue bog I hiked along the board walk and into the peat bog. There were lots of birds to see. The Red-winged Black Birds were active protecting their territorial claims in the cat tails. There were Song Sparrows singing and Grackles flitting in and out of the cat tails.

Red Wing Black Bird Singing

Male Red-winged Blackbirds defend their territories during the breeding season. They can spend a quarter of daylight hours defending their territory. The board walk at Mer Bleue Bog is perfect for watching the Red-winged Black birds.

Song Sparrow Singing

Song Sparrows like to perch on high branches to sing. They sing both to attract mates and defend their territory. Beyond the board walk at Mer Bleue is a peat bog. The Song Sparrows like the trees that grow around the edge.

Later in the day I met up with a couple of friends and we looked for Snow Geese. Unfortunately they had mostly moved on. I did get this nice images of them over head.
