This handsome devil was making the rounds and collecting some of the summer berries in the area when we passed by. Next time a napkin might be in order. Sturgeon Slough was the site of several good birds this year including a Yellow-bellied chat, a Chipping sparrow and some Black-crowned Night Herons. This has always been a special area for birding but better than most this year. Not far from here was a Costa's hummingbird in the early summer which does not usually come north of California and Nevada. Our subject, the Black-headed Grosbeak is a summer resident here in southern British Columbia and is seen occasionally during walks in the area.
