Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 7, Part 2

We still had the afternoon left after finishing the Capilano Swinging Bridge walk, and Angie mentioned that there is an indoor conservatory combined with an aviary that she though we should take a look at. Birds and plants are high on my list of favourite things – so of course I agreed to this suggestion… Continue reading Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 7, Part 2

Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 2

Even though it was cloudy this morning, I headed to Grayling Lake to see about a sunrise photo. Today is a bonus already even with the clouds because the forecast said rain all day and it isn’t raining, It also wasn’t going to show me a sunrise – but even without the sun, the early… Continue reading Winnipeg to Vancouver – Day 2

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
