Looking for an Owl

After walking the dogs this morning, I headed to the English Garden beside the Zoo at Assiniboine Park. Several people have been seeing a Barred Owl there and I wanted to see and photograph it also. I couldn’t find him though – even with the help of a friend who had seen him more than… Continue reading Looking for an Owl

Another visit with Buddy & Coconut

Buddy & Coconut’s family went away for a couple of days, so I got to spend time with the little guys again.  Guess who took pictures. 🙂 The boys and I took a couple of walks each day.  The walks are much shorter and much slower than my walks with Toby – but the walks… Continue reading Another visit with Buddy & Coconut

A Spring Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Springtime brings hundreds of migrating birds who are heading for their nesting spots in the area or further north.  One of my favourite spots to see them is at Fort Whyte Alive, so I headed over there a few days ago to walk around.  It was a beautiful morning. I just barely cleared the entrance… Continue reading A Spring Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

This Looks More Like Spring

I haven’t been for a walk at Fort Whyte Alive for awhile.  Near the end of winter and into early spring, I have found the walkways to be icy & slippery, so I wasn’t sure if I would stay to walk much or not – but it was a nice morning, so I headed there.… Continue reading This Looks More Like Spring

A Walk in the Woods

It was such a beautiful morning, that I decided it was time to take a walk along the Seine River behind my apartment.  I headed along the path to the pedestrian bridge nearby. Just before the bridge was a bunny in the grass.  Then a picture of the river from the bridge and a closer… Continue reading A Walk in the Woods

Catch Up

Between the move and my upcoming vacation, I haven’t been around here much lately and I apologize for that – but it will be awhile before things get back to normal (whatever that is) again. To fill you in – I have moved, although still unpacking.  Hopefully I will be finished unpacking before I leave… Continue reading Catch Up

Back to Some Critters

I have been very lax at keeping up with the critters in the neighbourhood.  For some reason, I often even forget my camera when Chester and I head out for our walks- so I don’t have many pictures – but I do have a few. I haven’t had time to figure out the bird that… Continue reading Back to Some Critters

New Year’s Bunny

I think this little guy has made a home for himself under my front steps.  I found him by my Mock Orange the other day surveying his domaine.  He casually grabbed a leaf from the Mock Orange to chew on and proceeded to stamp around a bit to flatten the snow for himself or herself… Continue reading New Year’s Bunny

Duck and a Bunny

I have finally seen one clutch of ducklings on the Red River, but this was so early in the morning, that I have no way of knowing what kind of ducks.  I suspect Mallards, since they are the ones that would have had to lay and incubate a 2nd clutch after the first was washed… Continue reading Duck and a Bunny

Back in the Neighbourhood

Of course, Chester and I still live and walk around our neighbourhood, which is currently very busy in the furred and feathered department.  We have squirrels, bunnies and birds all over the place.  The number of ducks on the Red River this morning was amazing.  There were hundred, if not thousands just on the 4… Continue reading Back in the Neighbourhood
