Well folks, I’m back in business! My desktop computer is once more working and all my pictures have been recovered…..seems I did save them to my external hard drive after all….just couldn’t figure out how to retrieve them…now thanks to Ben (son of a friend) I have it all back and all working fine. Back to Windows XP – NO MORE VISTA! as that seemed to be the root of the problems
So…before I continue on with the story, I’m just going to go back and post a few pictures from the DSLR camera, that weren’t available when I did the actual postings….
This is one of the Least Flycatchers that were seen constantly (at least until it snowed), in the vicinity of the campsite in the Center block of Cypress Hills….
and here is one of the Swainson’s Thrush seen there ~ yes Bill, we saw Swainson’s Thrush everywhere! there are more to come….
and there is one of, what I am sure, are Pink Sided Junco…….they were the only kind of Junco we saw there….
And there is Ernie and Shantz going for a walk on the beautiful sunny day….the day before the snow struck!
This Prairie Crocus picture was taken along the above walk….
and these little Spring Beauty’s grew alongside the paved path that I featured before….
So we’ll say good bye to the snow – again – and this poor bewildered Robin….
and now we’re in the little community campground at Grassy Lake, Alberta….this is a Common Grackle…
and that is a bunch more of them on the fence that divided the campground from the adjacent field…
this was looking south from the campground….that ‘white’ isn’t snow, it was a flock of Gulls – don’t know what kind….
and I’m going to toss in this Townsend’s Solitaire….also at the same place…..
So that is it for now. It might take me a day or two to get the next batch of pictures ready….I’ve had to start from scratch – again – on this computer….and that is very time consuming!!! But we’ll be heading to Writing On Stone….real soon!
