Wascana Regina Field Trip – February 2016

Nature Regina’s Field Trip on Saturday, Feb. 6th took place at Wascana Park in Regina, led by Brett Quiring. The initial weather forecast of rain and snow at least held off, with the temperature getting to + 5 celcius.

25 people were on the field trip.  Quite a few birds were noted, and Fox squirrels were seen.  Here is the list of the birds found, with photos on the left taken by Hiroyuki Aoki, and photos on the right by Julian Wotherspoon. Click on each photo for a larger view!
