Down by the sea

Down by the sea
Just a fairly large shell that had been placed for decoration at the Blue Waters Inn, on the island of Tobago, West Indies. Couldn't resist taking a shot or two, taken on 13 March 2017. A few decades ago, I used to love collecting shells in the Far East…

This photo was taken two days ago, on Monday, 26 September 2016, and I wasn’t going to post it. However, I noticed an article on the weather network website and saw a few other photos taken of this rather spectacular Chinook arch, so thought I would add…

White-crowned Sparrow / Zonotrichia leucophrys
This little White-crowned Sparrow landed on a rock at the bottom of Red Rock Canyon, on our last day in Waterton Lakes National Park, 10 July 2016. One rapid shot taken from the bridge, which didn't come out as sharp as I would have liked - it was a long…

Mountain Bluebird from three years ago

Mountain Bluebird from three years ago
This is a photo from way back in my archives. I was lucky enough to be with birding friends at Inglewood Bird Sanctuary on 16 April 2013, when about 10 beautiful Mountain Bluebirds (male and female) were flying over the Bow River and landing on the rocks…

One of the beautiful mountain scenes from a two-day trip through the Rocky Mountains with friends, Cathy and Terry, on 14 and 15 May 2014. Everywhere was quiet, as we made sure we were back home before the long Victoria Day weekend began, when the roads…

I close my eyes and dream I'm still there
Another photo from a wonderful day along the Icefields Parkway (Highway 93) west of Banff and Lake Louise, on 10 August 2013. Our destination was beautiful Bow Lake, so that friend Sandy could check on a Liverwort (non-vascular plant) that she had seen t…

Visitor to the city

Visitor to the city
Usually, one has to drive out of the city in order to find the beautiful Mountain Bluebird. Each year, though, a handful might be seen in one location or another within the city. Around 10 of these startlingly blue birds were seen yesterday (16 April 20…

A treat in the city

A treat in the city
Ha, at least you can see the face of this little Mountain Bluebird, unlike the one I posted the other day. The previous one did show much better detail of the back and wing feathes, though. Taken at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary on 16 April 2013.

I was lucky enough to be with birding friends at Inglewood Bird Sanctuary on 16 April 2013, when about 10 gorgeous Mountain Bluebirds were flying over the Bow River and landing on the rocks not too far from where we were standing. They repeated this a nu…
