  1. Her birding days are over,

    I am very sorry for your loss. It sounds like the two of you made the most of the time that you had together. Thank you for sharing.
  2. Those "Almost" Good Shots!!

    Too much in the way...

    Tiger Salamander - September 13, 2017 Rain fell last night for what felt like the first time in two months. Four of these beautiful creatures were spotted this morning walking through my yard. They may have been even more happy than I was for the moisture on the ground.

    Thank you! The color threw me off initially. At first I didn't think it was a Great Horned Owl but then realized it couldn't be anything else. This was a pretty cool sighting for me. I was walking on a seldom used trail along a river when I spotted the owl napping on the log (the log was lying on the ground a couple of feet off the trail). I quietly sat down about 20 yards away from it and after about 10 minutes it finally opened its eyes and seemed a bit surprised to see me. I sat for another 20 minutes watching it while squirrels chattered nearby and Black-capped Chickadees flitted about. Eventually I decided to stand up and continue on my walk and the owl immediately flew in my direction and passed about 5 feet above my head before landing on a new perch further back into the forest.

  10. Pine Grosbeak?

    Size and tail length seem right but I only saw this bird from below. Photos taken today in southwestern Alberta very close to the BC border in a fir/larch sub alpine forest.
