A little ornithology on vacation

We go on vacation to Shannon’s hometown of Trail, British Columbia each August.  Trail is a wonderful, small town along the Columbia River just north of the Canada/U.S. border.  I wanted to write this because even here I can combine vacation with a small contribution to ornithology.  Yesterday was our first morning in Trail, I got up early and went out for a walk up onto the ridge above Sunningdale, the neighborhood where Shannon’s Mom lives.
