We are having a lovely, warm Fall so far.  I went out for a drive to see what birds are around.  Nothing of note except for increasing numbers of Sandhills Cranes, Canada Geese, a few Greater White-fronted Geese and a flock of 42 Am. Crows.

The Mantei-Ribling Marsh is full of water.  I guess it was last year as well.  However, in the previous 2-3 years, it was bone dry by Fall.  Nice to see the water table high, even if there was flooding.  Better than the drought.

The prairies don't enjoy the astounding profusion of Fall colours one sees in other parts of the continent.  But, perhaps the odd splashes of colour, such as along rivers and creeks, are even more poignant.

This is Wood-End, the Long Creek end of Boundary Dam reservoir, this morning

I love looking at horses.  I swing by this farm any chance I get.  There are two of these big Percheron draft horses (the other one was off away from this trio).  They go to 'pull' competitions.
