Despite the unstable weather I've done a bit of hiking although not nearly so much as I wanted to.
These shots were taken along the fringe of the east track wetlands.
The song sparrow is a favourite of mine, and lives on the fringe of the wetlands.
|Raven With Prey.|
I caught the Red-winged Blackbird high in a tree which is unusual as they are normally in the wetland. Then I stumbled into some Ravens and caught them in flight, and, on the right, returning from a raid on a smaller bird's nest. You can click to enlarge the photos as usual.

|A Pair of Canada Geese|
These Geese were on land and I think send there to keep me away from the wetland. As I said in earlier posts the rains have flooded out their nesting sites, I think, on the Vermilon River, and I've been looking for them.
They took off and that's the same geese landing below.
|Landing In Tandem|
Not a bad landing flying so close together. But I'm certain the pair below need to practise some more.
|Bad Take Off or Landing.|
|Still Standing Around|
This is what it was all about. They, the geese, outmanoeuvred me as I was directly above them at one point, but I didn't see any goslings. The geese on land were send to ward me off if I got too close. Once I was far enough away, they joined the elders and out came the goslings.
