Kingfisher or Calvin

A Belted Kingfisher (Ceryle alcyon) panting after a dive on a hot summer day.  Now what does this remind me of?

Got it!  Calvin of Bill Watterson's very amusing comic strip, Calvin & Hobbes

Out On The Prairie

I went for a long drive yesterday to my favourite place in Saskatchewan - the expanse of prairie ranch land in the The Big Muddy area.

It is about a 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive west from my current home.  

And a Dickcissel (Spiza americana) at Avonlea - a tad fuzzy but hey, best I could do at the time.
