Spring snow falling in the Yukon

May 12th, 2011

Unexpected Spring snow falling in the Yukon and covering already flowering…

It’s pretty rare to see shorebirds in snow, here are two different Solitary Sandpipers (Tringa solitaria) looking for food after the snowfall.

The American Robin (Turdus migratorius) seems more adapted to live in the snow, this one was flying from tree to tree, disturbing some squirrels.

It’s more difficult to find the Prairie Crocus (Pulsatilla patens) that we saw blooming last week, they are now often hidden beneath the snow cover.

  1. Vos photos sont vraiment magnifiques. J’aime particulièrement le merle dans ce décor neigeux, une image qu’on voit rarement !
    Bravo pour toutes ces photos superbes.

  2. Bonjour Nicolas,

    Il est tout aussi surprenant pour un Européen de constater tant de neige en mai. Les flocons apportent un charme aux clichés.

    Bien à toi.
