I have been talking quite a bit about the Pembina Valley Hawkwatch.Well it seems like it is coming to a close.
I have a few more pictures to share with you.
These Sandhill Cranes flew high over the Valley.
I have had to crop the picture,so the quality is not the best.
I still like how they look against that blue sky.
That same day we had this Cooper's Hawk migrate through.
Notice the rounded tail and chunkier body.
This is one way of telling the difference between the Cooper's and the Sharp-shinned Hawk.
Not every day is ideal for watching migrating Raptors.
The sky was overcast and a high fog hung over our heads.
I kind of like how this Red-tailed Hawk has a ghostly look.
I had seen this feeder on another blog and wanted to get one.
I finally found it in a farm supply store.
The Purple Finch was the first bird I saw at the feeder.
By now it has become a favourite spot for many birds.
Finally,something a little different,just to prove that I don't just see birds.
This is moss on the side of a tree in my yard.
I was intrigued by how it looked,so out came the camera,and this is what I got.To me this looked like small green rosettes.
Thought for today:
Faith to light the darkened sky,
Love to touch and heal the soul,
Strength to carry on.
This is my prayer for each of you.
