The Weekend

Saturday, March 22, 2014:  The Snow Line

Although plenty of snow disappeared before the official arrival of 'Spring,' the snow line has the Rough-legged Hawks slowly moving north and the Snowy Owls waiting patiently!  Both of these Arctic-nesting birds are certainly accustomed to the 'tug-o-war' game between Winter and Spring.  Lucky for us, we get to admire them for a few more days (or weeks dare I say) before the snow line retracts North and they migrate on!  

(We were fortunate to have spotted 4 Snowy Owls on our travels!)

Sunday, March 23, 2014:  Warm Rays ... COLD Temperatures!

Brrr ... now a few weeks ago, -14C would have felt rather balmy but this recent blast of COLD feels colder!  Perhaps my mind is playing tricks on me, for I see those warm looking rays of sunshine and just expect them to actually hold warmth!!!  


  1. Gorgeous bird photos. I can't take my eyes off the snowy owl looking down at you! Stunning!

  2. I am loving your beautiful photo of crocuses as your header ….these magnificent shots of birds ….& running boys. Wonderful photographs all!
