Each year, we call in at this particular property SW of Calgary when we are taking part in the annual May Species Count. The owner wasn't home, unfortunately, so we just stood near the entrance to his place and noted any birds that were around, including some beautiful Evening Grosbeaks : ) This gentleman has this wonderful old English phone box and a bright red, English mailbox set into a stone wall in his garden. There is also a bright red fire hydrant on his lawn (and he does have dogs, lol) - wonder if that was from England, too. Visiting this property always makes me feel like I'm back in England, where I was born and spent my first 22 years.

This year, there was also a little Dark-eyed Junco that sat for a while, giving a chance for photos. Probably the best chance I've ever had, to photograph a Junco.

I think I saw other photos of this beautiful red phone booth last year. It really is a cool looking thing and I think the owner must work hard to keep it in excellent condition. It must be quite interesting inside of it as well.
