Situated in a glacial valley, Blackstrap Lake is fed by a canal from the South Saskatchewan river. This deep lake provides habitat in season for many species of ducks, geese, loons, grebes, pelicans, gulls and terns. Shallow sloughs near the lake provide habitat for many kinds of sandpipers and plovers. Woodlands adjacent to the lake are home to songbirds including numerous Purple Martins, Baltimore Orioles and Western Kingbirds. Rarities are often reported from this lake. Over 200 species of birds have been reported in or near this lake.
During our tour, we will drive to visit the best birding locations near this lake. Washrooms and food are available at nearby locations.
