There is never a shortage of ducks and water fowl in the Shuswap. We are fortunate enough to encounter Canada Geese, female and male mallards and their tiny babies (in early spring), cormorants, Grebes (although I am still hoping to capture them doing their beautiful mating dance), common merganser, scoters, and many more.
Mr. and Mrs. Mallard and family
Canada Geese, often an over-looked bird, beautiful and splendid.
The Western Grebe, is abundant on Shuswap Lake each year, their amazing dance being one of the most elaborate breeding rituals seen.
rarer sightings of the cormorants and the merganser
let’s not forget the American Coot (this one I am still not sure of)
