Fluffed

January 19th was one of our cold, cold days and every bird I managed to photograph looked like this - feathers all fluffed up to try and keep warm. This photo of a little Black-capped Chickadee was taken on a morning walk in Weaselhead.

 

UPDATES:

1. To those of you who knew our dear friend Doug Waylett, I had an e-mail from Flo (his wife) this morning, letting me know that she has extended Doug's extensive Flickr account, so that his valuable photos can continue to be enjoyed and be of use. I was so concerned about this, so thank you, Flo, for doing this. Doug's images provide a most valuable resource, especially for those who are interested in lichens, fungi, etc.. www.flickr.com/photos/dougcwaylett/

 

2. To those of you who were curious about the make of the old motorbike in a photo of my Dad in his younger days, my son contacted the Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin, here in Alberta, and they told him that it is an Ascot Pullin. These were produced in the UK between 1928-1930. Thanks so much, Steven, for thinking of contacting the Reynolds-Alberta Museum and finding out this information and for adding a link to Wikipedia under the photo.
