I had no idea that I would be seeing a Hummingbird at the end of November – but it seems the Anna’s Hummingbird actually stays here all winter. Until this year, I have always lived in Winnipeg (aka Winterpeg). In July of this year, I moved west to Chilliwack, British Columbia and I knew winters… Continue reading Visitor Outside My Window & Another Walk
The last week or so, it has been very smoky here. I know this is fairly normal, and even though this is my first year here, I know the dry season lasted later than usual. Because it is so dry, there have been fires in the forests and the smoke had blocked my view of… Continue reading From Cloudy & Smoky to Clear & Cool
I didn’t ask for Canada Geese, but I certainly enjoy watching them gather. I’ll be sorry to see them head south, but will be here to watch them when they return in the spring. I managed to get a few photos other than Canada Geese – Mallard Ducks, Grey Squirrel and a scenery shot –… Continue reading Did Someone Ask for Canada Geese?
Canada Geese (& a few Snow Geese and ducks) have begun to gather where they can discuss their summer with friends & relatives before heading south for the winter. I was told by one of the regular walkers here that the numbers will increase to thousands (instead of just a few hundred) before they move… Continue reading Just a Few Canada Geese
It was such a beautiful morning that I decided to head over to the Vedder River trail to walk. I usually avoid weekend walking since the trails can be busy, but thought I would go anyway. The fisher men & women were sure out in full force. As usual, I talked to a few people… Continue reading Beautiful Day for a Walk
I decided to head north to Lockport to see if any Pelicans were still hanging out there. It was a beautiful morning and I enjoyed the drive. When I reached Lockport, I headed for the little park where I can usually get some decent photos, but the bridge construction has pretty much blocked off the… Continue reading A Morning at Lockport
It was a chilly morning today, when I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive with my camera. The first tree I noticed has changed the leaves to yellow instead of the green they have been all summer. I guess autumn has officially arrived. I do love autumn, but it is just too close to winter.… Continue reading A Fort Whyte Alive Walk This Morning
I left Bird’s Hill Provincial Park and drove to Lockport to take a look around. I found Pelicans and Cormorants. I found out that there was construction on the Lockport Bridge and that the speed limit on the bridge was 30 km, but before going over the bridge, I went into the park on the… Continue reading Hanging Around at Lockport
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
More from my walk yesterday.
