The Yellow-bellied Marmot is classified as Secure in the General Status of Alberta Wild Species report. Even so, I had never seen one, so this was a real treat to see several of these beautiful animals on the final day of a three-day trip down south. Fr…

Better late than never

Better late than never
This photo is mainly just as a record that I actually got out on a birding walk with a group of friends on 8 January 2018. My main reason for pushing myself out the front door was to catch up with friends. One look at the weather forecast for that week…
