Thank you to my friend Hugues to make me discover the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec this month. During my winter trip in Gaspésie, I had the chance to encounter for the first time the beautiful Snowy Owl. We watched a dozen of these magnificent birds in a few days!

We found this pure white male on the third day looking for snowy owl, he was sitting in a field watching for prey.

Trumpeter Swans, Yukon Territory

It’s as sure a sign of spring as any, the Trumpeter Swans have returned to their favorite resting area in M’Clintock Bay on Marsh Lake, in the Yukon Southern Lakes Area. Approximately 750 swans were counted last week in the bay by the Swan Haven biologists. Each year about 10% of North America’s Trumpeter Swans stop here during spring migration.
