Well it’s October 2 and we are getting our first snow storm of the season. They are predicting 10-20cm of the white stuff and the winds are blowing (31km/hr at the moment) like mad which makes for lovely drifts! Thought I’d brighten up this post with a few birds. The young owls are big now and it’s hard to tell the difference between parents and their ‘chicks’ unless we see them vocalize (they can’t hoot yet). The Northern Flicker hit the window pretty hard and was quite dazed for awhile but he eventually flew off. We’ve had some fantastic sunsets due to the smoke from the wildfires (Waterton fire is under control and this snow will really help).

A wicked storm!! There will be broken branches before this ends. Hope the power stays on!
Not unusual for you guys at this time of year. Waldy really took a great pic of the sunset. Leaves still on the trees with the snow coming down looks pretty. Your birds are doing well too.
Really nasty here in Calgary today……snow, wind, & cold! No beautiful wildlife to enjoy like at your home! LOVE your photos as always! Sunset outstanding.
Good Morning. Oh those pictures send shivers down my back. I want you to know that here this morning, it was a clear sunrise. I brought it in with my coffee sitting on the deck watching the eastern sky lighten as I like to do. We’ve had an unusually warm last 6 weeks.
Flowers are still in bloom with only a slight frost a couple of weeks ago on the house roofs. 50 degF overnight. I say shivers because I’ll be diving with a sister& a brother at 11 at Burnstown on the bridges that we do once a year. Do you remember the church at the top of the hill? We used to carry all our gear down&back from there but these last several years we use Jeff’s boat, a bit of giving in to age.
We had a wedding next door to us last Saturday and because of the storms down south, the couple decided to go to Calgary and do Jasper and Lake Louise, then I see your pics! I don’t think they took winter gear with them. Well Marlene that is it for now. I hope Waldy has dug out your deck. Dave
