Pacific Forestry Centre insectary specimens for reference purposes only. Dates and locations of specimens variable, from Victoria, BC, 1960s to 1993.

From @cratzlaff "A. obliterata was released originally around Victoria in the late 60's as a biocontrol test for balsam woolly adelgids and then was recovered in the late 80's and 90's by Lee Humble at the Pacific Forestry Centre. He collected a lot of specimens and they were deposited at the PFC and the Canadian National Collection."

Individuals have recently been observed on iNat in the area, so the population appears to have persisted.

Photographically, they are not really useful, but I figured I might as well post these here just to help confirm some species. Obviously thes are old dead ladybugs though I am not fully sure they are all the same species due to the spot shapes.

There are many lady beetle and wasp species in these photos - so a single ID is not possible. But I thought the iNat community would be interested nonetheless. Many dead beetles and wasps were along the receding ice (spring melt) of Great Slave Lake. This was observed for approximately 1.2 kilometre along the ice edge.

This image is part of an observation I made a couple of days ago, but there was so much going on, including three different avian species, that it merits further comment. Here I am focusing on a juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron (seen in the background) as it peeks out of the brush at a much larger Great Blue Heron, attempting to drive off a Red-shouldered Hawk which has landed on the island. A discarded shopping cart and other assorted trash, washed down the river by a recent storm, adds to the sense of discord, as does the turbulent water boiling in the background. Interesting to note, the hawk remained calmly on the fallen branch throughout the display (which included lots of loud squawking) until the large heron quieted down, before flying off.
So how is this observation about the Night Heron? I simply could not get over the look of that juvenile bird reacting to the conflict.

the eBird reviewer for this region is saying that this is a Northern Shoveler. I've never seen one with a red head. Could this be a hybrid NOSHxCITE or an alternate plumage for NOSH? He said the 2 females that were with it were CITE. Also, the male duck in question has an orange-red eye vs the yellow eye of the normal NOSH.
Observation for female CITEs: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/38738339
Update: I posted additional photos here and on eBird and the reviewer agrees it is a strange bird. He is reaching out to some duck hybrid folks about it.
2/20/2020: the eBird reviewer, Steve Cardiff, has consulted with 2 hybrid duck experts and they say this is a hybrid Northern Shoveler × Cinnamon Teal.
