Cecil and I took a walk around the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary today, it's something I've planned to do since we came to Calgary but the floods of June 2013 closed the venue for quite a while. During the closure we moved out to Cochrane and it slipped to the back of my mind. This week while looking for a steady walk I refound the venue and decided to give it a look. It's quite a small place (4km of trails in total) but has a huge parking area and an excellent diversity of wildlife in, on and around it's waterways, not least of which is a group of Wood Ducks bringing spectacular colour to venue (main image). We walked all of the short trail network and stopped numerous times to make images along the way, all in all it's a lovely little place in the heart of the city where all traffic noise is lost and nature is truly on the doorstep. The gallery below has captions to identify the birds in the images.
We arrived in Calgary, Canada on 29th December 2011 to continue our journey. This blog is intended to keep our family and friends informed whilst we explore Canada.You can use the RSS feed below to stay updated.
