Visitor Outside My Window & Another Walk

I had no idea that I would be seeing a Hummingbird at the end of November – but it seems the Anna’s Hummingbird actually stays here all winter. Until this year, I have always lived in Winnipeg (aka Winterpeg). In July of this year, I moved west to Chilliwack, British Columbia and I knew winters… Continue reading Visitor Outside My Window & Another Walk

Back to the Zoo

This morning I had an appointment with a dentist – just to get to know them and know what they can or will do for me. It looks like their policies are quite similar to the dentist I have been going to for the last few years in Winnipeg. They are going to contact them… Continue reading Back to the Zoo

A Beautiful Day for a Walk in the Zoo

I had a few reasons for moving from Manitoba to B.C. and the weather was one of those reasons. Yesterday it was +9C under a sunny sky while in Winnipeg, it was below zero with snow. In Winnipeg, one of my regular activities was to volunteer at the Assiniboine Park Zoo there and I was… Continue reading A Beautiful Day for a Walk in the Zoo

Walking Around Sardis Pond

I love finding new places to walk, but always enjoy returning to my favourite spots too. Yesterday, it was time to return to Sardis Pond. Last time I was at this pond, there were hundreds of Canada Geese but this time, I could count the total numbers of them on one hand. Before leaving home… Continue reading Walking Around Sardis Pond

A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail – part 2

I took so many photos along this trail yesterday that I couldn’t get them all into one post. So, to continue on my walk, I actually missed this guy perched on a tree right along the path. I saw him (or her) as he took flight and landed on a tree on the other side… Continue reading A New Section of the Vedder Rotary Trail – part 2

Back at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve

Each time I go back to this beautiful Nature Reserve, I explore a little bit more and this time was no exception. Some of the photos are cropped by WordPress to fit, but you can see the full photo by clicking on it. A pair of Mallard Ducks and a beautiful (& very tall) dead… Continue reading Back at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve

Return to the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve

The first 2 times I went to the Heron Nature Reserve, I saw one Great Blue Heron – and both times it was at the same spot (give or take a couple of meters). So, I headed there yesterday morning to see if I could find it again. It was drizzling a bit, but but… Continue reading Return to the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve

What’s the Chance that I Might Find another Great Blue Heron at the Reserve

I know the Great Blue Herons leave the reserve once the young ones are independent, but since there was one young one still hanging out there when I went a couple of weeks ago, maybe I’ll find another one. I still have several trails through there to explore anyway. I did find a bird that… Continue reading What’s the Chance that I Might Find another Great Blue Heron at the Reserve

Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve & More

I decided it was time for me to check out the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve a couple of days ago. I found about about this reserve after I had seen the beautiful Heron in the Sardis Pond a few days earlier. My first stop though was Sardis Park & Pond, where I managed a… Continue reading Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve & More

A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 5

After my little mid-day break, I headed back out to see what I could find. Instead of going back into the park, I went south a bit after getting some information on lakes with a nice variety of birds along a road nearby. My first photo wasn’t a bird though. As I rounded a corner,… Continue reading A Couple of Days in Riding Mountain National Park – part 5
