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
After a wet and chilly morning, the sun came out and I decided to head to Fort Whyte Alive for a walk.
