Kamloops Birding November 25, 2017

I found the time to do a mid-day drive around yesterday.  There wasn’t much on Edith Lake Road but the Rosehill area had a large flock of Snow Buntings busily feeding in exposed soil.  The winter we had a couple of weeks ago has vanished and it was pleasantly mild last weekend at around 5-10 degrees.  A drive along Shuswap Road from the bridge near the Wildlife Park to the Yellowhead Highway produced the usual Swans, Geese, and other waterfowl.
