Recap: Red River Birding Walk–Sept. 3, 2021

You never know what you’ll encounter on these walks and birding Red River Beach today was a true testament, especially with views of the red-tailed hawk, a variety of shorebirds, five gull species, and many others. Glad you were able to see 19 species today. Many thanks to walk leader Peter Trull and photographer Gerry Beetham. As always, all birding experience levels are welcome on these unique walks!
