When I normally volunteer at the Assiniboine Park Zoo, I do not carry my camera with me. If I want to take a picture, I can use my phone. I was right beside the zoo while wandering in the English Garden though and decided to use my membership to go into the zoo as a… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Zoo
The last few weeks, people have been posting pictures in a Manitoba Bird page on FaceBook that I follow. They indicate they are finding Indigo Buntings in the English Garden in Assiniboine Park. I have never seen one of these birds and decided to head there with my camera and see if I could find… Continue reading English Garden/Leo Mol in Assiniboine Park
Buddy & Coconut’s family went away for a couple of days, so I got to spend time with the little guys again. Guess who took pictures. 🙂 The boys and I took a couple of walks each day. The walks are much shorter and much slower than my walks with Toby – but the walks… Continue reading Another visit with Buddy & Coconut
Last week, I spent a couple of days with my big buddy Toby, while his family was out of town. This guy keeps me moving! 🙂 I took a few pictures to share with everyone. Too many pictures to show full sized, but you can click on one and scroll through the larger sizes. He… Continue reading Toby Time
The Prairie Dog town at Fort Whyte Alive is one area you can visit without paying admission fee. These guys live just outside the entrance. I often stop in my car on the way out of there to take pictures if I see any activity. They can sure be fun to watch sometimes. I have… Continue reading Prairie Dogs at Fort Whyte Alive
These Bison were quite a distance away from the viewing areas, but I managed to zoom in enough so that, combined with cropping, I got some 1/2 decent photos. They have a nice herd of Bison at Fort Whyte Alive and it is nice to be able to see them in the city. They have… Continue reading Bison at Fort Whyte Alive
A few Red-wing Blackbirds were co-operative enough to pose for me while I wandered around at Fort Whyte Alive the other day. I could have just sat somewhere and let more birds come to me, but 1/2 my reason for being there was to walk – so I kept walking.
Some Canada Geese and Goslings were active at Fort Whyte Alive the other day, so I got some pictures of them. Everything is so peaceful, so you can almost forget you are in the city while walking here.
I got a few non-bird pictures while walking around at Fort Whyte Alive the other day. The next three were all crossing the path I was walking on. In a place like this (even right in the city) it is all natural and you never know what you might find there. I have seen caterpillars… Continue reading Little Guys at Fort Whyte Alive
Yesterday, I showed you the Pelicans at Fort Whyte Alive and today it is time for some ducks. It was a beautiful morning for a stroll and most of the critters were fairly co-operative. More to come tomorrow.
