Chickadee Trail at Birds Hill Provincial Park

I always seem to keep repeating the same trails every time I go to Birds Hill Provincial Park, but this morning I decided in advance that it is time I tried the Chickadee Trail. I was at the entrance to the trail a few years ago when a good friend (Judy) brought me out there… Continue reading Chickadee Trail at Birds Hill Provincial Park

Back to Fort Whyte Alive

It has been awhile since my last visit to Fort Whyte Alive, so this morning it was time to head back there. It is much quieter than during breeding season, but at this time of year that is normal. There were still plenty of photo opportunities. It was a nice morning for a walk –… Continue reading Back to Fort Whyte Alive

My Walk Along Bunn’s Creek

It was a beautiful morning with temperatures in the low 20’s instead of the hot 30’s we have been getting the last few weeks. I thought Bunn’s Creek might be a good place to walk a bit, so that is where I headed. My plan was to walk all the way from the park along… Continue reading My Walk Along Bunn’s Creek

Assiniboine Park after a Temperature Drop

Luckily we did not get the extreme & dangerously high temperatures that the west coast of Canada had a few days ago, but we had temperatures in the high 30C range – up to 38C. Parts of British Columbia were in the high 40C range almost 50C. Currently a large number of wildfires are burning… Continue reading Assiniboine Park after a Temperature Drop

Finally – back to Riding Mountain National Park

Last fall, I headed for Riding Mountain, but ended up with car problems and had to be towed back to Winnipeg. My last visit before then was in June of 2020 – so I was excited to make a 2 night booking at the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast just outside the park. The weather was… Continue reading Finally – back to Riding Mountain National Park

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

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

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
