Fort Whyte outing was short but well worth it.
Got an incredible deal on some premium tires, witnessed a Merlin catch a bird in mid flight then on the way home was the last person to get gas before they jacked up the price by .10 cents a liter (about .40 cents a gallon). Felt so blessed and lucky that I splurged on a lottery ticket.
Quite a few Geese at Fort Whyte, but, still a lot more to come. Estimate there were at least 1,000 in and around Fort Whyte. Quite a few immature Ducks present and saw lots of small birds but didn't see them long enough to identify most of them or get photos.

|As I rounded a corner into this garden I saw this Ruby Throated Humming Bird feeding. Photo was quick and on the wrong setting so it not great, but, it is the first time I've seen a Humming Bird feed from a flower.|
