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

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

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 1, part 4

After exiting the Bison enclosure, I headed to the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast to get checked in.  I had a tour of the place, got the pictures all loaded onto my laptop to clear the camera card and relaxed a bit before heading back out. First stop was the Wishing Well, and the sprinklers had… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 1, part 4

Canada Geese and Wood Ducks

Still not much action in the baby department along the Red River.  On many of my walks with Chester, we see absolutely nothing – although we are serenaded by the singing birds hiding in the bushes along the bank.  🙂 We did get to see a family of older goslings and another family of older… Continue reading Canada Geese and Wood Ducks

Wood Ducks

We’re having a beautiful morning here.  The sun is shining, the temperature is 21C and there is a slight breeze.  Chester and I watched a Wood Duck and her 7 ducklings swimming on the Red River.  They stayed nicely in line, so I could get them all in my pictures.    

Ducks

Yesterday, Chester and I found a pair of Mallard Ducks and a trio of male Wood Ducks while taking our walk along the Red River.  Chester also spotted and stalked several bunnies, but none of them wanted their pictures taken. The Mallards posed nicely for me, but the Wood Ducks did not cooperate much, although… Continue reading Ducks

Mallards and Woods

Ducks that is  🙂 It was a beautiful bright sunny day when Chester and I had our walk yesterday.  I had an earlier shift so we had an earlier walk.  The sun was just at a nice level to make everything look wonderful. I saw one pair of Mallard Ducks, but the female was in… Continue reading Mallards and Woods
