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…

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, 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…

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.
