"Curious lack of waterfowl" Top 5 Page for this destination Birds/ Animals/Flowers Tip by zrim

  the duck is swimming through the reflections
by zrim

We tried hard to see our paddling friends. We got up early and went to the bird blinds in the Cave and Basin area of Banff townsite. We got up early and braved the bugs at Vermilion Lakes. We stopped at all of the lakes along the Icefields Parkway, but we bagged very few ducks. Only the Common Goldeneye, the Lesser Scaup and a Loon. We had been hoping for the Harlequin Duck, but it was not to be.
