Things are very slowly starting to return to normal. The big thing (for me) is that the Assiniboine Park Zoo has opened. Normally, I volunteer there about 3-4 times a week, and I have really missed it. The zoo opened to the public on Wednesday May 13th, but on Tuesday the 12th, we had a… Continue reading Back to the Zoo
Yesterday looked like a nice day and I had nothing in my calendar – so I headed north to Lockport to see and photograph the Pelicans around the dam on the Red River. I pulled into the park on the east side of the river when I got there and walked over to see if… Continue reading A Couple of Hours at Lockport with Pelicans (and friends)
I spent this morning walking around Fort Whyte Alive and have plenty of pictures to show. I am dividing them up into a few posts to keep the same or similar critters in each post. This one contains Pelicans. Hope you enjoyed the Pelicans – more to come in the next post.

But, I still had to get some time in nature where I might be able to… Continue reading Another Walk in the Rain
I wasn’t successful in finding Pelicans when I drove north to Lockport last week, but I headed up there again this morning – just in case they had arrived.
