I have just returned from an incredible week of birds and mammals in the prairie lands and mountains of Manitoba - Canada. The whole trip exceeded my highest expectations and I would highly recommend this superb location for birding and photographic holidays ;-) We had 161 species throughout the week and a good number of mammals including Bison, Black Bear, Moose, Elk, Beaver, Musk Rat, 13 Striped Ground Squirrel . . the list goes on. . . .here are a few of my favourite shots from my Canadian experience.
