The Inglewood Bird Sanctuary and Nature Center in Calgary, Alberta, Canada was one of our favourite birding hotspots along the Trans Canada Trail in Alberta. Tucked into a meander in the Bow River, this 36 hectare natural green space has been providing migratory birds with a place to rest and refuel since 1929. During our #Hike4Birds across Canada we thoroughly enjoyed following its 2 km of paved and hard packed gravel trails and wooden boardwalks around a small pond, across a wetland, along the rocky shore of the Bow River, through a shrubby area, and into stands of balsam poplar and deciduous forest. Impressively, over 270 species of birds have been reported in the park. Amazingly, during our visit we spotted two Wood Ducks paddling quietly on the pond. In addition, we heard the busy, friendly chatter of Black-capped Chickadees in the shrubs, and the softer calls of Cedar Waxwings, Eastern Kingbirds, and a Yellow Warbler. Furthermore, a Double-crested Cormorant was fishing on the banks of the river, and the rocky shoal was covered in Ring-billed Gulls. A family of Black-billed Magpies, a Northern Flicker foraging for ants on the lawn in front of the historic Colonel Walker House, and a flock of Northern Rough-winged Swallows wheeling overhead were additional highlights for us. The Inglewood Bird Sanctuary is a tranquil natural oasis in the midst of the City of Calgary, and it is one of our favourite birding hotspots in the area.
