Yoho National Park
The border between Alberta and British Columbia
About half a day was spent visiting a few tourist spots in Yoho National Park in British Columbia. First stop was The Great Divide: Gray Jay here and American Coot and Lesser Scaup nearby (follow the road further into B.C.- pools by the side of the road). Next we went to the Spiral Tunnels. A walkway and platform give a good view over the trees and valley: Yellow-rumped Warbler, Wilson's Warbler, Mountain Chickadee and American Robin found here. Next was Emerald Lake where the now common Pine Siskin, Dark-eyed Junco, Violet-green Swallow, Barn Swallow, Chipping Sparrow and Common Merganser can be found. Also here was a pair of Red-necked Grebes.
We also stopped at the Yoho Brothers Trading Post in a town called Field. A pond near the carpark held a male Barrow's Goldeneye and we saw one female Harlequin on the river and a male flying up the river.
