This was the ninth Birdquest tour to Manitoba and as has become standard course the birds and other wildlife, the habitats, the scenery and experiences all combined to make the tour a memorable one. There were no shortages of surprises following the coldest recorded winter in the province in 116 years with many species of birds arriving on time but with others “behind schedule”. Nevertheless the tour total of 227 species of birds (and 23 mammal species) can certainly be considered respectable.
