A shot taken at the Crossing RV site. A fellow was setting up is tent and the cattle gathered to watch him. It was hilarious.
A Shoveler mother and her brood.
An Upland Sandpiper checking me out.
A Willet is quite a drab bird until it flies and reveals the wing pattern.
A male Wilsons Phalarope incubates the eggs. This one must have had a nest close as it was doing a distraction display.
It was raining as we headed to Douglas Park so we decided to take a side trip to Moose Jaw and visit the Western Development Museum. This trailer handmade in Manchester England caught our eye.
Franklins Groundsquirrel or Bush Gopher-they are all over our campsite.
Veerys are also common in the campsite.
Last evening I went down to a small pond hoping to find some beaver. I lucked out with 2 but not with my lens. It was way to powerful to capture all of these surprisingly tame subjects. They would swim up to me and stare me down.
Diefenbaker Harbour at Elbow Sask. where I have found a WIFI signal for the blog.
Another nice flower.
While I was watching the beaver this muskrat also wanted to get in on the action.
Our target bird. We have looked for the Piping Plover many times before and it was satisfying to finally find them.
3 young Piping Plovers were scurrying away from us. These shots are heavily cropped as we didn't want to get too close.
