June & July Updates

Greetings friends. Another late, late update, but I hope you'll enjoy another new batch of photos. This is my biggest update ever in fact! With nearly 50 new photos that are favourites, taken in June and into July.
Some were taken locally in my own backyard, some in Prince Albert National Park and some were taken in southern Saskatchewan where I stayed with a friend last month for a few days.

Here are the pics!

Beautiful pictures, all of them well taken. Almost all the birds are unknown in my country,this is good to know new species; only a bit hard to recognize without scientific name.

Wow and woow... How do you do that mate? Getting so many species and so many good pictures of them, with sumptuous light or reflection... This post is awesome!

I stumbled across your site after searching for pictures of horned larks to compare to a bird I saw. Amazing pics! I especially love the owls and the White-crowned Sparrow and its reflection! Looking forward to seeing more of your shots...
