Wildlife during a winter blizzard

The snow started to fly on Friday and has kept falling through the weekend.  And, it’s cold!  I went touring west of Bragg Creek yesterday but saw very little – even when the sun came out for a couple of hours.  Today was a different story and I saw a couple of moose, some white-tailed deer and a small banditry of chickadees.

Moose love the cold so I hoped to see them in one of their regular haunts.  I found this young bull grazing in the bushes.

These chickadees, mostly black-capped with a couple of boreals, flitted around a fence line that’s long been fighting to hold back the bushes behind.  I’ve always liked watching these little birds – they move very quickly so it’s a nice challenge to photograph them.

  5. Really like seeing the third photo with the moose in it’s environment, and the one of the Chickadee taking off.I am sure it is a good day for shooting if I can extricate myself from this warm blanket I am cozying under.
