Just a Few Canada Geese

Canada Geese (& a few Snow Geese and ducks) have begun to gather where they can discuss their summer with friends & relatives before heading south for the winter. I was told by one of the regular walkers here that the numbers will increase to thousands (instead of just a few hundred) before they move… Continue reading Just a Few Canada Geese

Busy, Busy, Busy

It has been about 2 months since I arrived at my new home in British Columbia. I did quite a bit of exploring, walking and taking photos, but suddenly it was time to start getting things done to finalize my move.

I rolled over to try to get back to sleep – but it was too noisy, so I finally decided I… Continue reading Birds, Flowers, Street Work & Voting

Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive

I’ll start with my “before leaving home” shots. My Sunflower plant still has flowers but much smaller than the first ones and just at the bottom of the plant – and a Blue Jay on the tree just off my balcony. Then I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive to see what I could find.… Continue reading Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive
