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.

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 !

Re: Arctic Birds on Migration: Saskatchewan

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.

Re: Arctic Birds on Migration: Saskatchewan

My Thatched Hut ·
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...
