Vesper Sparrow

Vesper Sparrow
As you can tell by the photos I posted this morning, I got out of the forest and into the dry prairies. Yesterday, 21 August 2018, turned out to be such a great day, with some much-appreciated sightings. I must have spent about 8 or 9 hours driving and…

This morning, I wanted to finish off the last few photos taken on a drive south to Turner Valley and Frank Lake. Too many Pine Siskin photos, you say? Ha, I know, but I don't get that many chances to photograph birds, especially fairly close, and there…

Jackie's squirrel - Red or Eastern Gray?
The weather alert for poor air quality continues, though this morning is low risk, unlike the extremely poor air quality the last few days (10 and 10+). This changes all the time. Our temperature is only 7C at 10:00 am! Looks like we could have rain to…

Glorious Canola

Yesterday, 20 July 2018, I no choice but to get out for a while. My place is unbearable on so many summer days and, at the moment, I dare not open any windows in case my house mouse (mice?) finds another tiny space to get in. All this week, I have been…

Love an old, red barn
Early afternoon, on our day trip to the Ellis Bird Farm, we were taken to a nearby farm to hopefully see something really special. Unfortunately, despite many pairs of good birding eyes, we were unable to find what we were looking for. However, I spotte…

American Goldfinch male, Tadoussac, Quebec

American Goldfinch male, Tadoussac, Quebec
This photo was taken on 15 May 2018, through a window, when we were in Tadoussac, Quebec. Thought I would add it, as a break from the more distant photos taken at Pt Pelee. I'm not a fan of taking photos at feeders, but it was good to see this male Amer…
