A Couple of Hours at Lockport with Pelicans (and friends)

Yesterday looked like a nice day and I had nothing in my calendar – so I headed north to Lockport to see and photograph the Pelicans around the dam on the Red River. I pulled into the park on the east side of the river when I got there and walked over to see if… Continue reading A Couple of Hours at Lockport with Pelicans (and friends)

Oak Hammock Marsh on a Cool & Windy Day

I haven’t been to Oak Hammock Marsh in many years.  The last few times were only because the parrot club was having a display there and as a member, I would take some of my birds out to take part.  The club still has displays there, but I haven’t had any birds for several years… Continue reading Oak Hammock Marsh on a Cool & Windy Day

I just barely cleared the entrance… Continue reading A Spring Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

There are 2 places that I love, but haven’t been to visit much this year.   My vacation in Kruger National Park took up plenty of time, along with my move and then my mother’s fall that broke her shoulder. One of the places is  Fort Whyte Alive – right in Winnipeg, which makes it quick… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

June 9 – 10: The Journey Home

My last African sunrise. The morning started off cloudy and the sun was fighting to show itself again, but made a nice early morning sky. This is my last few hours in the park and I am taking a very slow drive to Skukuza, where I will have a late breakfast or an early lunch… Continue reading June 9 – 10: The Journey Home
