Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary

A small selection of photos from the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area in Saskatchewan, Canada. The Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary is within the National Wildlife Area.

The Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary was the first migratory bird sanctuary established in North America.

It is a staging area for migratory birds. In the autumn there can be hundreds of thousands of Snow Geese and tens of thousands of Sandhill Cranes using the area.

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Sanctuary prompt.

Eye Level with an American White Pelican

This is my day 11 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and another of my eye level perspective photos.

This is an American White Pelican (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos) on a section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area in Saskatchewan, Canada. In the breeding season adult birds grow a laterally flattened horn on the upper bill. The horn is shed after the birds have mated and laid eggs.

It was a hot, sunny afternoon so if I wanted to get to eye level with the birds I had two choices, lying in the sun at the edge of the water or set up a tripod in the water and sit in the water with the camera. I chose to sit in the water.

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Dusk.

Having quite a few photos to pick from I decided to go with two favourites, one from Saskatchewan, Canada and one from Ontario, Canada, both featuring ice.
