Backyard Birding in Alberta

Welcome to my new backyard birding blog…

I love being in nature and I love photography so this hobby of mine combines two of my passions. Moving into my house this summer motivated me to watch and see which species visit my new neighbourhood and I’m excited to say that I have been happily surprised at the variety!  I have decided to get my backyard certified as a wildlife friendly habitat – but more on that later.  This blog is a place for me to document what I see – mainly in my own backyard and neighbourhood, and sometimes further out.  I’d love your comments and ideas and I love to do related topic link swaps, just click the comment button beside each post.

If you are reading this – I hope you enjoy the images :)
