A Sunny Cold Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

It has been about a month and a half since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive. Although it was a chilly morning with a temperature of -28C and a windchill in the -30’s I decided it was time to head over there. I didn’t stay long though. I only walked the smaller side where the… Continue reading A Sunny Cold Morning Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

A Sunny Morning with a Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

It was a beautiful sunny morning with temperatures around -13C (and not much wind) when I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive for a walk. I signed in with my membership card and as I headed out the door, I saw a sign that said paths were very slippery and to use caution. Although it… Continue reading A Sunny Morning with a Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Winter is HERE (and a Short Walk)

I checked the temperature, which was about -10C, and the sun was shining, so I decided to take a walk at Fort Whyte Alive this morning. I didn’t notice the wind until I had arrived at my destination and that wind hit hard. I was already there though, so I entered and started my walk.… Continue reading Winter is HERE (and a Short Walk)

An Afternoon Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Today is another amazing day (for this time of year), but I couldn’t do my usual morning walk. I was waiting for a phone call and wanted to be home to make notes. So – I headed out to Fort Whyte Alive in the afternoon. The mornings (when I usually go) are much quieter than… Continue reading An Afternoon Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive

I’ll start with my “before leaving home” shots. My Sunflower plant still has flowers but much smaller than the first ones and just at the bottom of the plant – and a Blue Jay on the tree just off my balcony. Then I headed over to Fort Whyte Alive to see what I could find.… Continue reading Always Something to see at Fort Whyte Alive

It has been awhile since my last visit to Fort Whyte Alive, so this morning it was time to head back there. It is much quieter than during breeding season, but at this time of year that is normal. There were still plenty of photo opportunities. It was a nice morning for a walk –… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

I hadn’t been to Fort Whyte Alive for a few weeks, so today seemed like a good day to head over there. They didn’t make it easy though since one of the roads I travel on to get there was closed – so I had to take a longer route. But, I made it there… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

Walking Around Fort Whyte Alive with my Camera

It felt like ages since I’ve been to Fort Whyte Alive, but really, it has only been a couple of weeks. Walks are never the same though. I get to watch different critters/birds/reptiles/insects each time. It was a beautiful day for a walk. The heat wave which has been around for a few days was… Continue reading Walking Around Fort Whyte Alive with my Camera

A Stroll around Fort Whyte Alive

Spring means baby critters and a walk around Fort Whyte Alive seemed to be a good idea. Although I heard there were some Goslings there, I was unable to find them (this time). I did find critters and some large babies though. We are having beautiful weather now and I will be outside as much… Continue reading A Stroll around Fort Whyte Alive

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
