A Couple of Hours at Fort Whyte Alive – part 2

Trips to Fort Whyte Alive are always nice.  It is on the outskirts of Winnipeg, but you feel immersed right in nature.  There are lakes, ponds or puddles, pastures, bush, a treehouse, bird feeding stations and a lot of birds and other critters.  It is a great place to just get away without actually leaving… Continue reading A Couple of Hours at Fort Whyte Alive – part 2

Another Walk in the Rain

I haven’t been to Fort Whyte Alive recently and thought I would head there for a walk today.  I was delayed a bit because my Mom wanted me to help with something and that didn’t actually go as planned.  But, I still had to get some time in nature where I might be able to… Continue reading Another Walk in the Rain

Finally Some Babies

I was beginning to think that I wouldn’t be seeing any babies along the Red River this year, but the Canada Geese decided to parade some goslings by this morning while Chester and I were having our walk.  They are not newly hatched, so they have been hiding them somewhere during our normal walk times. … Continue reading Finally Some Babies

Canada Geese and Goslings

I still have more pictures of the critters at the zoo from the other day, but at this time of the year, the Canada Geese and their adorable Goslings are fun to watch.  There was one little Gosling that I was keeping an eye on – for two reasons.  One – he was limping and… Continue reading Canada Geese and Goslings
