Sturgeon Creek and Assiniboine Park

This morning I decided to make a return trip to Sturgeon Creek. I could hear lots of birds singing, but was unable to get any photos of any of them – other than some swallows who I am guessing are Bank Swallows that nest along the bank. The photos of the swallows are not great,… Continue reading Sturgeon Creek and Assiniboine Park

My First trip to Beaudry Provincial Park

Until recently, I had not known about Beaudry Provincial Park. It is certainly the closest provincial park to the city, but isn’t well advertised. I had lived more in the eastern areas of Winnipeg and Beaudry is just to the west. It was a cloudy morning with a possibility of rain according to the forecast,… Continue reading My First trip to Beaudry Provincial Park

Looking for Pelicans

I don’t usually go out to walk trails on Saturday, since there are often too many people around to enjoy the walk and very difficult to socially distance – but this morning I thought I would head out to Lockport to see if any Pelicans would like to pose for photos. There were a few… Continue reading Looking for Pelicans

A Chilly Walk at Bunn’s Creek

It seems that the Cardinals and the Owl get advance notice when I’m heading for Bunn’s Creek – because as usual – they were nowhere to be seen. The temperature was a balmy -19C with a windchill feeling like -30C, so I bundled up and headed for my walk under the bright blue sky with… Continue reading A Chilly Walk at Bunn’s Creek

I was going to head for Oak Hammock Marsh, but changed my mind while driving and went to Lockport to… Continue reading Taking a Break from Packing

Dogs/Cats/House Sitting

For the last couple of weeks, I have been staying with my buddies Sunny, Leo, Harry & Timmy in their home, while their mom is away on vacation. You have met these boys before, but I have (of course) taken a few more photos of our time together. Many of my facebook friends have seen… Continue reading Dogs/Cats/House Sitting

A Winter Walk at Fort Whyte Alive

It was a pretty chilly morning when I decided I needed a nature break, but nature was calling, so I bundled up and headed for Fort White Alive yesterday. You can see larger versions of these photos by clicking on them and scrolling through. I had almost finished the loop around, when I saw a… Continue reading A Winter Walk at Fort Whyte Alive
