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

Day 2 – part 3 at RMNP

After a yummy breakfast of French Toast & Bacon at the Whitehouse Bakery, I walked over to Ominnik Marsh for a short stroll. I didn’t stay at the marsh long and then headed back to Lake Katherine to check out the Loon’s Island Trail that starts there. I’ve gone a little bit into it before,… Continue reading Day 2 – part 3 at RMNP

Finally – Back to RMNP – part 2

I won’t be checking into the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast until after noon, so I have plenty of time to visit all my favourite stops before then. The Spruces has a beautiful sunset almost every night. The Wishing Well Road has a beautiful sunset for a limited amount of time – the sun just needs… Continue reading Finally – Back to RMNP – part 2

Two Stops in One

This morning I headed for Bunn’s Creek to see if I could bet a better photo of a Cardinal. I didn’t see or hear a Cardinal at all though, so after a quick shot of a Muskrat in the creek and a few photos of a White-breasted Nuthatch, I decided to cross the Red River… Continue reading Two Stops in One

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

A Stroll Around Assiniboine Park

After a big Saturday morning breakfast, I decided to head over to Assiniboine Park to see what I could see. I started out at the English Gardens to check on the hole in the tree that had been made by the Pileated Woodpecker earlier in the spring. Last time I checked on it, I couldn’t… Continue reading A Stroll Around Assiniboine Park

A Morning Walk at St. Vital Park

I had an errand to do in the St. Vital area, so decided to take my camera and head for St. Vital Park for a walk. It was a beautiful morning. Although I walked around the entire park, most of my photos were taken at the pond. It is a really nice pond that has… Continue reading A Morning Walk at St. Vital Park

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 Quiet Stroll along Bunn’s Creek

It was a beautiful morning today, so after a large and very yummy breakfast at Cork & Flame I decided to drive over to Bunn’s Creek. Tomorrow the winter weather is forecast to return for a few days. But first – my breakfast! At first it appeared as if all the ice on the creek… Continue reading A Quiet Stroll along Bunn’s Creek

A Short Stroll before Vaccine Time

My COVID vaccine appointment is for the afternoon today, but I still need some time to walk (instead of sitting around on the computer at home) – so I went to Assiniboine Park to check out the English Garden and to see if I can find the Pileated Woodpecker again. No luck on finding the… Continue reading A Short Stroll before Vaccine Time
