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

Oak Hammock Marsh in April

Spring is here – the snow is gone and the birds are back in town. Well – Oak Hammock Marsh isn’t actually “in” town, but it is north of town and many of the birds flew right over. Many of them may have even stopped for a rest on the rivers or little lakes in… Continue reading Oak Hammock Marsh in April

I got there just before noon and decided to have… Continue reading Beautiful Winter day at Oak Hammock Marsh

My little feeder has been out for a couple of weeks now and I’ve got several Chickadees visiting so I sat at the window for just a few minutes and ended up with… Continue reading Photo Shoot with St. Peanut

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
