Red-wing Blackbirds at Fort Whyte Alive

A few Red-wing Blackbirds were co-operative enough to pose for me while I wandered around at Fort Whyte Alive the other day. I could have just sat somewhere and let more birds come to me, but 1/2 my reason for being there was to walk – so I kept walking.

Canada Geese at Fort Whyte Alive

Some Canada Geese and Goslings were active at Fort Whyte Alive the other day, so I got some pictures of them. Everything is so peaceful, so you can almost forget you are in the city while walking here.

It was a beautiful morning this morning – perfect for a little stroll. I headed out for a walk along the Seine River, but hardly got over to the other side of the river before finding out that there is an annual Mother’s Day Run on my path.  The run had just started so no… Continue reading Mother’s Day Run
