Images from Fall 2007

This American Robin showed up at our house a year ago.
He seemed fine except that his tail was missing.
He needed to visit a 'Retail' shop.
Getting his daily morning exercises. This is a small part of the flock of Mallards at St Vital Park,Wpg. last fall. Here are a few words to brighten your day.
Tender little memories Of some word or deed Give us strength and courage When we are in need.

Have a great day.

3 very lovely photos! I love the little squirrel and such a strange position! The robin is lovely as are the ducks! There are certainly a lot of them there at that park.

Great photo of the robin. It looks just like a Baltimore Oriole ... which is where I am from. Sadly, the Orioles have not been any good ever since they switched their cap from the "cartoon" to the "orinthologically correct" version of the bird.

People don't take the Robin's picture enough. Everybody thinks it is a common bird, but it is just as worthy as all the others.
