A Couple of Hours at Lockport with Pelicans (and friends)

Yesterday looked like a nice day and I had nothing in my calendar – so I headed north to Lockport to see and photograph the Pelicans around the dam on the Red River. I pulled into the park on the east side of the river when I got there and walked over to see if… Continue reading A Couple of Hours at Lockport with Pelicans (and friends)

Oak Hammock Marsh on a Cool & Windy Day

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

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 4

This would be my first flight with West Jet and the plane was scheduled to leave Winnipeg at 6:20 am.  I decided to spend the night at the Best Western Hotel very close to the airport, so I… Continue reading Winnipeg to Vancouver

Flocks of Geese and Project Finished (Maybe)

This morning as I was sitting at my computer with my cup of coffee, I noticed (and heard) flocks of geese flying right by.  If I lived on the top floor, I’m sure that I could have almost touched them.  When they were still coming a few minutes later, I decided to take the camera… Continue reading Flocks of Geese and Project Finished (Maybe)
