We have lived in the Calgary area for the past 7 years and only yesterday did we visit Fish Creek Provincial Park for the first time! A disgrace, if you ask me, as it turned out to be a great destination to explore. The park is the largest urban park in Canada and is among one of the largest urban parks in Northern America. The park itself stretches around 19 km/12 miles from east to west in southern Calgary. It is a haven for birdwatchers, as up to 200 different species have been spotted there. It was a pretty grey day yesterday, so no blue skies, but thankfully the rain held off until we got home.
Here are some of the birds we came across, some of which I am still trying to identify!
