Fort Whyte Alive Walk

I didn’t really go to Fort Whyte prepared this morning (meaning I did not have my good camera with me), but I went anyway.  I always have my phone and my little pocket Nikon and I was out already after having my regular Saturday morning breakfast at the Red Top and a visit with my Mom.

I didn’t see much in the way of wildlife, but the snow adds a difference in the walk, so I took a few pictures as I went.

Many of you will understand that my first thought when I saw these trees leaning was that Elephants may have had something to do with it.

Bat House or is it Bat Man’s house?

My surprise wildlife.  Ducks – lots of Ducks!

Zoomed in, it looks like all Mallard Ducks

There is a spring right around there, which is why the water is open.  But, this much won’t stay open all winter so I hope the Ducks have made other arrangements.  Wonder if they’re just waiting until they are sure that hunting season is over.
