Last week I wrote about the report released by Audubon last week that documented northward range shifts in 177 bird species. Coverage of the report was incredibly widespread with hundreds of media stories (click here to the story in USA Today).
In one story I was quoted talking about the northward expansion of Black-billed Magpies into the Northwest Territories of Canada. I had mentioned my experience of seeing a Black-billed Magpie in the 600-person community of Deline on Great Bear Lake when I visited there two summers ago, which I wrote about in a previous blog.
Recently my friend Ed Reeves who lives in Deline sent me some of his winter photos of there that I thought it would be fun to share below.
