Chimney Swifts in My Neighbourhood

I love birds, but until recently Chimney Swifts were unknown to me. Last year the Assiniboine Park Zoo, added a chimney on their property that had been used by Chimney Swifts, but I think the building it was on was being demolished. This chimney is not at an easy to see location, and I would… Continue reading Chimney Swifts in My Neighbourhood

The Move

Well, I have moved again. It is almost time to use No Fixed Address (NFA) to locate me – LOL. I went from living in my own home for over 30 years to 3 moves in the last 3 years. I started packing early for the move, since I would be away from home while… Continue reading The Move

The first pictures were taken from my window looking over a field just past the parking lot in July and August – up to yesterday. This morning, I found them on my doorstep. … Continue reading White-tail Deer on my Doorstep

A Little Walk

Yesterday, I had absolutely nothing scheduled except for laundry, so after the laundry was done, I went for a walk along the Seine River.  I just brought my little camera that does’t have a lot of zoom, since it fits into my pocket. First thing I found was on a tree trunk just behind my… Continue reading A Little Walk
