A fantastic photo day.

President Murray Park in Saskatoon really put out yesterday. Crossbills and Kinglets are usually way up in the top of the spruce trees and I might get a picture of their underbelly from a long distance. For some reason as the sun spilled over the low level clouds and illuminated the park a male White-winged Crossbill and a Golden-crowned Kinglet flew down and started foraging almost at eye level.

Then a female Crossbill flew down to the road where a grader had thrown ice mixed with salt and tiny rocks. You can see the tongue mopping up something in one picture. The male soon joined the female on the ice.

The day before I had spied a Great Horned Owl in a spruce tree in the same park and after some time it moved away from the mess of branches almost as if to say ‘Ok…you want a clear picture… Here I’ll move into full view. Thank you Owl!!

    Wow.. i have to start looking closer..to think these amazing creatures are here amongst us and we rarely (except thankfully for you, Trent), notice them or are even aware of their existence! That owl photo is especially awesome!

    As always I feel like these beautiful birds are about to fly through my screen and land on the keyboard they are so real!
    Thanks for the lovely shots!

    Thanks Trent all the beautiful birds that I have seen fleetingly but don’t know by name.
