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...

Thanks for the tour of this music Mecca, Ottoman. I'm a big music fan and always enjoy these sort of articles. It's interesting to know the history behind where the artists recorded their music and this looks like a must to visit.

Re: Yellowstone National Park in Winter

DrFumblefinger ·
Thanks so very much for making us a part of your fascinating road-trip by sharing your visit to this unique place at such a special time. It's so rare to actually talk to someone who visited Yellowstone in the winter, much less to read such a wonderfully written report and to share in your experience through your beautiful photos. I'm sorry you didn't get to see wolves in the wild, but in this you are not alone. As many times as I've been in the wilderness, I've yet to see them (though I was...

I really enjoyed this blog entry! I have been to Yellowstone but never in the winter, I want to now though. I especially loved the picture of the Bison in the snow.

I was in Turkey last May. Watching the evening shows in the outdoor theatre was really cold. The hotel staff came out with blankets for those without a heavy coat . You can buy any make of watch for under $10 ! Best Golf courses I've seen and all reasonably priced. The Montgomery Golf course was excellent. Look for Belek as an alternate place to stay. I really enjoyed it !

Hurricane Joaquin crossed the Atlantic and got split in two by the jet stream. France got trapped in the middle of the two. Allowing cold air from Siberia to blow across northern Europe. So the Geese have arrived here on the wind too. 3 Weeks too early. Its what the remnants of Hurricanes do.

Hi Kirsten, Behind in my emails, but did want you to know that the last of your series on Celebrating Nature went live today. I want to personally thank you so very much for sharing your tremendous talents with our audience. I enjoyed reading -- and learned a lot -- from your posts and greatly enjoyed your wonderful photography! I'm sure many others did, too. If you have more material you'd like to post on TravelGumbo in the coming months, it would be our pleasure to host it. Hope you had a...

Re: Feb. 6, 2016: Dashing through the Snow

Looks like a good idea for a cold winters day. A gallop in the snow. Just hope there's no frozen ponds underneath. Great scenery you have - enjoy it while it lasts !

Re: Feb. 6, 2016: Dashing through the Snow

DrFumblefinger ·
Thanks for the note, Garry! They do love a run in the snow, and no ponds underneath to worry about -- just the rare gopher hole which is just as bad! Scenery should last. Properties around us are all privately and people want to keep their trees.

I can feel the stress draining away just looking at those beautiful beasts. Amazing colours they have. I know it's nothing to do with luck . But you are a lucky man DrF. !!

I am indeed a lucky man, Garry RF! The beasts are my wife's, but she's that lovely lady leading them out for their stroll. So lucky indeed! Married over 30 years and never regretted it.

Re: Dry winter shakes up Alpine ski and travel industry

PortMoresby ·
This photo could be California for the last several years. I have a friend near Milan who mentions the drought regularly. But the CA snow pack for the last couple of months is well above normal now, with more expected, so I suspect the same will be true before too long in the Alps. If one's heart's desire is a having a business free from outside effects (weather, war, politics, etc.) maybe tourism isn't it.

Re: Dry winter shakes up Alpine ski and travel industry

PHeymont ·
You may well be right about what's in store for those ski areas; below is the Accuweather summary for this winter in Europe. It appears that those ski areas are in line for some harsh weather before winter is over, although they've already lost considerable business. Our forecast in New York is for a "snow drought," and after last year, I'm ready for one!
