A Morning Walk at Oak Hammock Marsh – part 2

At this point, I was almost finished with my walk through and around the marsh and was heading back to the car. I was going to drive to the north side of the property and go for another walk there. Before I left though I really wanted to get a decent photo of some birds… Continue reading A Morning Walk at Oak Hammock Marsh – part 2

Bunn’s Creek and Sturgeon Creek Walks

I thought that when I actually got a photo of one of the Cardinals that live around and near Bunn’s Creek, I would be satisfied – but I would really like better photos. So, I headed back there again a few days ago for another try. My first sighting that morning was upsetting. I found… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek and Sturgeon Creek Walks

A Stroll around Fort Whyte Alive

Spring means baby critters and a walk around Fort Whyte Alive seemed to be a good idea. Although I heard there were some Goslings there, I was unable to find them (this time). I did find critters and some large babies though. We are having beautiful weather now and I will be outside as much… Continue reading A Stroll around Fort Whyte Alive

Day 3 at Riding Mountain National Park

Today I will be heading home and I was awake and out before sunrise. It was early enough that I thought I’d be able to get better sunrise photos at Whirlpool Lake than I did yesterday. I got a sneak peak from the road before the turnoff to the lake. Once I was at the… Continue reading Day 3 at Riding Mountain National Park

Finally – back to Riding Mountain National Park

Last fall, I headed for Riding Mountain, but ended up with car problems and had to be towed back to Winnipeg. My last visit before then was in June of 2020 – so I was excited to make a 2 night booking at the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast just outside the park. The weather was… Continue reading Finally – back to Riding Mountain National Park

Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

Plenty of birds are arriving here in Manitoba after vacationing in the south over the winter. It is interesting to watch as they arrive here – some will stay for the summer and and some will head further north. I’ll be keeping my eye on the Bald Eagle nest, but not sure how much I’ll… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

My First trip to Beaudry Provincial Park

Until recently, I had not known about Beaudry Provincial Park. It is certainly the closest provincial park to the city, but isn’t well advertised. I had lived more in the eastern areas of Winnipeg and Beaudry is just to the west. It was a cloudy morning with a possibility of rain according to the forecast,… Continue reading My First trip to Beaudry Provincial Park

A Stroll Around Assiniboine Park

After a big Saturday morning breakfast, I decided to head over to Assiniboine Park to see what I could see. I started out at the English Gardens to check on the hole in the tree that had been made by the Pileated Woodpecker earlier in the spring. Last time I checked on it, I couldn’t… Continue reading A Stroll Around Assiniboine Park

A Morning Walk at St. Vital Park

I had an errand to do in the St. Vital area, so decided to take my camera and head for St. Vital Park for a walk. It was a beautiful morning. Although I walked around the entire park, most of my photos were taken at the pond. It is a really nice pond that has… Continue reading A Morning Walk at St. Vital Park

Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 2

After returning to my car, I headed on towards the West Beach to wander a bit along the beaches. Now that the snow is pretty much gone, I found out that there are paved walkways everywhere. If those walkways had been plowed, it would have been very easy to have found my way back to… Continue reading Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 2
