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.
