    Maybe we hit the jackpot now...

    I just listened to a couple of flight song videos on YouTube and I feel confident it is the same song I was hearing plus a few other photos I found online look very similar.

    Thanks everyone for your input.

    Not a mountain I don't think. Maybe it could be a Robin. Kind of looks like a thrush. Other common birds in the area are HOLA and CCLO but I don't think it's those

    Thoughts on Sprague’s Pipit? They perform a song flight high in sky and their profile (from Sibley drawing) appears very similar to the bird I photographed though the tail length in the first photo appears longer.

    I Brightened a few as well. It would be helpful to know where in Alberta. I'm thinking western Bluebird

    Twin River Heritage Rangeland Natural Area at approximately 49.1588, -112.3646 which I believe is outside of Western Bluebird range. 

  4. The bird was flying fairly high, flapping it’s wings vigorously then taking a moment to soar and call/sing and then repeating. I observed it on two occasions about an hour apart at the same general location. This was in a large expanse of native grassland. I recorded a video of it (the first photo is a still from the video) but the wind overpowers the audio. If I can figure out how to extract a decent audio clip, I will post one.
