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 2 at RMNP

After leaving the beaver, I returned to the highway and drove north, to check in at my usual spots (Grayling Lake & Moon Lake) as I looked for Bears and Moose along the way. I continued north of Moon Lake for awhile before turning back and heading south. Next stop was the Boreal Trail. This… Continue reading Day 2 – part 2 at RMNP

Day 2 at Riding Mountain National Park

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

Back to RMNP – part 5

On my way towards the Bison enclosure I found – not 1, but 2 Coyotes. The first one was very shy and my only photo of him or her was behind the bushes. The second one ha no problem posing for photos. I took several, but will only show a couple of them. They were… Continue reading Back to RMNP – part 5

There were a few… Continue reading Looking for Pelicans

First stop was the parking lot at the main entrance where you can access the trails around… Continue reading A Morning at Oak Hammock Marsh

Geese, Ducks and More

It was such a beautiful morning yesterday, so I headed back to Fort Whyte Alive to walk after the snow had melted. The wind died down, the sky was blue and the temperature was back above 0C. Actually, it was about 10C and absolutely perfect for walking. Happy Easter!

Looking for Bald Eagles

Now that I know the location of a Bald Eagle nest, I decided to return for better photos. I don’t think I mentioned in the last post that the reason I didn’t zoom in more was because the batteries were pretty much exhausted and the camera would shut down if the zoom was used. It… Continue reading Looking for Bald Eagles

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
