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…

Frosted chin whiskers
The trees at the very edge of the roads were quite visible, but practically everything else disappeared in a dense fog that caught me by surprise today, 5 January 2019. I had hoped to finally drive east and northeast of the city yesterday, after already…

I am adding these eight photos late tonight. All of the photos were taken on 29 December 2018, when four of us (using just one car) took part in the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count for the Cochrane Wildlife Reserve area. I'm not sure why it's called…

Before I start on Day 7 of our two-week holiday in May 2018, I wanted to quickly add 8 photos taken the day before yesterday, 7 December 2018. I don't get over to the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary very often, but I decided to join four friends for a birding w…

Day 6, and so ends another day, Tadoussac
Late tonight, I decided to finish off the photos from Day 6 of our two-week holiday in May 2018. This photo was taken near the end of our fairly short afternoon drive (60 km), following the coast NE from Tadoussac as far as Grandes-Bergeronnes. I think…

Day 9, White-crowned Sparrow, Tadoussac

Day 9, White-crowned Sparrow, Tadoussac
After posting several horribly distant photos of birds, I thought I would jump ahead three days and post a close shot of this White-crowned Sparrow on the fence.

"Tadoussac is quite rightly listed as one of the 50 most beautiful bays in the world.

Day 6, Tadoussac Hotel, Quebec

Day 6, Tadoussac Hotel, Quebec
Before leaving home in Alberta, I had seen many photos online of this huge, bright red building and hoped we would get the chance to see it. The large, red and white hotel, which opened in 1864, is an attraction for many photographers. Likewise with the s…

A couple of days ago, I started on photos taken during the week we spent in Quebec, 12-18 May 2018. Some photos were taken…
