Re: Migration of Salmon on the River Tyne.

An amazing sight to watch. The distance a Salmon can jump from fast flowing water has to be seen to be believed. And no grizzly's to catch them !

You've shared some great photography with us, Ian, but these must be among the most challenging photos you take. The fish jumping takes place in a second. You need to compose, focus and capture the image in that time. Very tough to do and it makes me respect these all the more. Thanks.

Thank you, to take these images my reactions had to be very fast to say the least. I found that over a period of time I got better at predicting where they leap, and faster at reacting.

It's pretty crazy to imagine how far they travel. Hopefully we will be able to get the population increasing.

I'm always amazed that they find their way back to the river where they hatched. Amazing geographic memory.

Thank you not only for massively multiplying my knowledge of these birds, but also for the beautiful pictures of masses of the birds in flight...the patterns they form are fantastic!

I know how much U love birds, birding and nature, Tom, and you've give all of us who are even vaguely interested a reason to head up to Saskatoon. Of the many great birds you document, the one that has fascinated me the most is the whooping crane. Standing almost as tall as a man, it was at one time even closer to extinction than the California Condor. I'm far more optimistic about the Whooping Crane's survival than the Condors, and I really would love to see one of these in the wild.

All of these birds pass through Saskatoon during October. The Whooping cranes fly from the Northwest Territories in two or three days flying time and then stop for a couple of weeks near Saskatoon before flying on to Texas. I have been to their breeding grounds in the north and their wintering grounds in Texas so I have seen about 30 or so of them. They don't migrate in large groups like geese. They travel in family groups so five or six of them will arrive at a time. Some will reach Texas...
