Adventures in Pet Sitting

Most of you know that I love all critters. Unfortunately, since selling my home, I have been living in apartments that do not allow pets. The ones that do allow pets are usually more expensive to rent and my retirement income doesn’t give me enough to rent one of those. So, when my nephew contacted… Continue reading Adventures in Pet Sitting

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

Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 3

It was a short drive from the beach parking lot to the next parking lot, so I was soon walking along the Cedar Bog trail. The snow was pretty much gone, so other than some muddy spots – walking was good. 🙂 I could hear Chickadees, but they were not showing themselves to me –… Continue reading Back to Bird’s Hill Provincial Park – part 3

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 Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek

It was a cloudy/dull morning – not a great type of day for photo taking – but I headed to Bunn’s Creek in my never-ending search for the Cardinals that are often seen there. Not seen by me – but by many others. A few months ago, I met a woman who showed me the… Continue reading A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek

Fort Whyte Alive after a Fresh Snow

This morning I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive and so that is what I did and arrived a few minutes after they opened at 9:00 am. I stopped on the road as I was driving in to get a photo of some of the Canada Geese and Sea Gulls at the edge… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive after a Fresh Snow

A Walk in the Snow

With the temperature hovering around 0C, I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive where I could walk. There is still snow on the ground, which arrived a few days ago. The forecast says the temperature will be up around 10C in a few days – but I’m not holding my breath. The water… Continue reading A Walk in the Snow

A Snowy Walk

It snowed here a couple of days ago and the snow is still here! It has been several years since we’ve had snow in October, but when we have, it is usually gone the next day. This time, it just might stay until spring. 😦 I decided that I could survive a walk in the… Continue reading A Snowy Walk

Walking Through the English Gardens and Leo Mol Sculpture Garden

It was a cool morning, but the sun was shining and I went for a walk through the English Gardens. I knew there would be some birds around, but didn’t think any of the flowers would have survived the couple of frosty mornings we’ve had in the last week or so. The first 2 photos… Continue reading Walking Through the English Gardens and Leo Mol Sculpture Garden

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
