Eastern Kingbird, SW of Calgary

Eastern Kingbird, SW of Calgary
After editing and posting so many scenic shots recently, I needed to post something different, to remind everyone (and myself!) that I do also take bird photos, even close ones. Amazingly, I was able to edit and post these 11 photos this evening in one g…

Day 6, White-crowned Sparrow, Tadoussac
Just added 7 photos tonight, taken in May 2018, when four friends and I took a two-week holiday in Ontario and Quebec. This photo and the Evening Grosbeak are out of order, taken on Day 6 and Day 9, but I was missing posting a few bird photos. These two…

Fish Creek Park on New Year's Day

Fish Creek Park on New Year's Day
This evening, I decided to edit and post seven photos from today, 1 January 2019. I only took a few photos and they are really just record shots, so I thought I would get them out of the way - I need to get back to editing photos from Day 8 of our two-we…

Mountain Chickadee feeding on suet

Mountain Chickadee feeding on suet
Mountain Chickadees are birds that I so rarely get to see. We always seem to be in luck on this Bird Count, though.

All four photos posted this morning were taken on 27 December 2018, when I took part with seven others (in two vehicles) in the annual Au…

Blue Jay / Cyanocitta cristata

Blue Jay / Cyanocitta cristata
Though we have Blue Jays in the city, I usually hear them rather than see them. Heavily overcast didn''t help with taking photos, but at least I got it.

All four photos posted this morning were taken on 27 December 2018, when I took part with seven othe…

Evening Grosbeak male, Priddis Count
Yesterday, 22 December 2018, was the very first Priddis Christmas Bird Count. We unofficially tallied 28 different species, 520 individuals. Twenty participants turned out for this Count, which was great. The most impressive part, though, was that a 15…

Day 7 afternoon, Surf Scoters off Tadoussac
These 8 photos were taken on a whaling trip in a Zodiac that friends and I went on in the afternoon of 13 May 2018, the 7th day of our two-week holiday in Ontario and Quebec. We did see Belugas and Minke Whales, but they were far, far away, so no decent…

Day 7, American Robin, Tadoussac
These 10 photos were all taken during a morning birding walk in Tadoussac on 13 May 2018. I have now reached Day 7 of our two-week holiday in Ontario and Quebec, so I guess I am very roughly half way through. The next photos to sort through, edit and po…

Day 7, White-crowned Sparrow, Tadoussac

Day 7, White-crowned Sparrow, Tadoussac
It has happened again - my photo-posting is all in reverse to what it was before. I stay up far too late at night and so get up late most mornings. Eventually, I hope I can get back to posting reasonably early in the day.

Anyway, I have now reached Day…
