Riding Mountain National Park – day 2, part 2

After lunch I headed back out again – going into Wasagaming with a plan on walking out on the dock at Clear Lake. I didn’t even reach the highway when I saw this doe. She was looking and calling – you can see her mouth open on the last photo. I suspect she was looking… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – day 2, part 2

Beautiful Day for a Walk

A couple of days ago, it rained all day – FINALLY.  With the sun now shining and the moisture from that rain, everything is looking so green and beautiful now.  Amazing that it took until the middle of May before we got the April showers this year. This morning, I grabbed my camera and took… Continue reading Beautiful Day for a Walk

The Birds at Lockport

I took a drive to Lockport this morning to see how the ice was on the Red River at the locks today.  Not much ice around there, but some Gulls, Geese, Crow and a  Bald Eagle entertained me while I looked. First – a co-operative Gull posed for me – then a Crow flew overhead.… Continue reading The Birds at Lockport

A Walk in the Rain

I had most of the day on my own Wednesday, since Angie had to work.  She gave me directions to a good place to walk so that was the plan.  It was pretty wet, but not raining when I woke up, so I headed out after breakfast. Of course, it started to rain within a… Continue reading A Walk in the Rain

I Went Birding

Birds are fascinating.  I look at them and try to take pictures of them all the time – but ask me what I saw, I am am often not quite sure.  I usually know what type of bird it was, but trying to narrow down to the particular bird is very hard to do. I… Continue reading I Went Birding

Geese, Ducks and a Crow

Time for a bird day.  I got quite a few Canada Geese and Mallard Duck pictures yesterday, plus a Crow from a few days earlier.  I haven’t seen another Robin since that only one I saw several days ago.  Hope he didn’t fly back south again. It is sure nice to have more life around… Continue reading Geese, Ducks and a Crow

What’s With This Weather?

According to the calendar – this is summer.  It is August, isn’t it?  I turned the air conditioner off a couple of weeks ago, which is fine.  I don’t mind if the temperature doesn’t get into the 30’s C, but it would be nice if it was in the mid 20’s or so. I had… Continue reading What’s With This Weather?

It’s a Crow

I have noticed a lot of crows in the neighbourhood this year.  I saw them mobbing a raven who dared to enter this area and I saw another mobbing not too long ago, but could not see what they were after.  There were dozens of crows and more kept flying in from all directions to join the… Continue reading It’s a Crow

Variety

What you see today, is what I saw When Chester and I walked today and that was variety!   It was 10C when we walked!  Wow – what a relief and it didn’t feel any cooler than yesterday’s 16C.  I know my friends in Africa would have coats on along with hot water bottles and blankets… Continue reading Variety

Birds, Birds, Birds

Everywhere I looked on our walk along the Red River and even away from the river, I saw birds.  A lot of ducks, but other birds too.  It was 12C when Chester and I set out on our walk.  We took a little detour along the way – to check out a bird (of course).… Continue reading Birds, Birds, Birds
