Living Small – a Little Birdie Told Me

These photos were taken May 3/20.

Sunday mornings seem to be the safest time to walk our local paths. Less people out and now that the snow is gone, you can at least get off the path onto the grass, as others come toward you in some dangerous game of chicken.

We were so glad to be able to walk to our local lake on May 3/20. The bird life was amazing, as you wil see.

This mallard is obviously tired.
Comfy place to sleep
We don’t see many robins these days, so happy to take photos where I can, even on someone’s back deck.

    1. They come on their migration, but never stay long. We have seen them on the storm pond in our little city to the South of Edmonton. Pelicans spend a lot of time in Saskatoon, though. Thanks for reading and commenting. Allan

    1. I think their migration routes are pretty static. Why they end up here sometimes, I am not sure. Bad GPS? They love to float by the weir on the S Saskatchewan River. We used to see them there when we visited our friends. Cheers. Allan

    1. We used to have robins in our yard every year…and then the crows came and raided the nests for about 5 years in a row. Then the robins were less frequent. Now that the Merlin falcons have chased the crows away, the robins were back singing in our yard yesterday. Yay Merlins. Thanks for reading Lynette. Allan

    1. They are tough adversaries. The Scottish use them to guard their Scotch distilleries. Here, you never want to come between the gander and the goslings. We have been hissed at, run at and pecked at on our lake walks.. And do not even get me started on their toileting habits. Thanks for reading and commenting Jay.
