Rare bird sighting in Kananaskis Country

Recently, Angélique and Allan Mandell were lucky enough to spot a Say’s Phoebe up the north north fork of Canyon Creek at an  altitude of  2300 m (7546 ft.) just below the col between peaks  412443 and 409435. It appeared to be picking off insects from the lichen on the rocks. For a bird of the prairies and badlands, it seems way off course. They wonder if anyone else has seen this bird in the mountains?

    Congratulations to Angelique and Allan Mandel on identifying a bird so far out of it’s range.
