A Morning Walk at Oak Hammock Marsh – part 1

Over the last several months, I have developed a habit of walking every single morning and I always take my camera with me. I look for any wildlife or scenery to photograph and I walk a few miles. I enjoy sharing my photos with friends and family both on my own facebook page and on… Continue reading A Morning Walk at Oak Hammock Marsh – part 1

Bunn’s Creek and Sturgeon Creek Walks

I thought that when I actually got a photo of one of the Cardinals that live around and near Bunn’s Creek, I would be satisfied – but I would really like better photos. So, I headed back there again a few days ago for another try. My first sighting that morning was upsetting. I found… Continue reading Bunn’s Creek and Sturgeon Creek Walks

Day 2 at Riding Mountain National Park

I had decided I wasn’t going to set an alarm to get up and get out for the sunrises this trip – but amazingly enough, I work up early anyway. So – I headed out while it was still dark. I was greeted by the beautiful moon as soon as I went outside. It was… Continue reading Day 2 at Riding Mountain National Park

Finally – Back to RMNP – part 2

I won’t be checking into the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast until after noon, so I have plenty of time to visit all my favourite stops before then. The Spruces has a beautiful sunset almost every night. The Wishing Well Road has a beautiful sunset for a limited amount of time – the sun just needs… Continue reading Finally – Back to RMNP – part 2

Finally – back to Riding Mountain National Park

Last fall, I headed for Riding Mountain, but ended up with car problems and had to be towed back to Winnipeg. My last visit before then was in June of 2020 – so I was excited to make a 2 night booking at the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast just outside the park. The weather was… Continue reading Finally – back to Riding Mountain National Park

Two Stops in One

This morning I headed for Bunn’s Creek to see if I could bet a better photo of a Cardinal. I didn’t see or hear a Cardinal at all though, so after a quick shot of a Muskrat in the creek and a few photos of a White-breasted Nuthatch, I decided to cross the Red River… Continue reading Two Stops in One

Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

Plenty of birds are arriving here in Manitoba after vacationing in the south over the winter. It is interesting to watch as they arrive here – some will stay for the summer and and some will head further north. I’ll be keeping my eye on the Bald Eagle nest, but not sure how much I’ll… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive this Morning

A Stroll Around Assiniboine Park

After a big Saturday morning breakfast, I decided to head over to Assiniboine Park to see what I could see. I started out at the English Gardens to check on the hole in the tree that had been made by the Pileated Woodpecker earlier in the spring. Last time I checked on it, I couldn’t… Continue reading A Stroll Around Assiniboine Park

A Morning Stroll at a very busy Fort Whyte Alive

I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive a little later than I usually go. Normally I am there at opening, but it was about an hour after than when I arrived. The parking lot was almost full, so I knew there would be a lot of people in there and I thought about turning around… Continue reading A Morning Stroll at a very busy Fort Whyte Alive

A Quiet Stroll along Bunn’s Creek

It was a beautiful morning today, so after a large and very yummy breakfast at Cork & Flame I decided to drive over to Bunn’s Creek. Tomorrow the winter weather is forecast to return for a few days. But first – my breakfast! At first it appeared as if all the ice on the creek… Continue reading A Quiet Stroll along Bunn’s Creek
