Not unusual bird
A photo of birds identified as long billed curlews in the May 23 edition of the Moose Jaw Express was not as unusual as thought. The birds are actually white-faced ibis, a species that has gradually moved its nesting area north from the U.S. border. Traditionally, the white-faced ibis ranged in a band across the northern tier states and into part of southern Alberta. Nature experts say the white-faced ibis would never have been seen in Saskatchewan 20 years ago. Now it ranges two hours drive north of the border.
