I'm looking forward to bird photos with the 150-500. This winter in Southeastern Mb . was wonderful for birds of prey.

Great Gray photo's of five....Northern Hawk Owls...over wintering Bald Eagles...all in the Hwy. 15, old Hwy. # 15 and the Seven Sisters- Pinawa area.

Snowy White Owls in Western Mb. were plentiful.

I meant to go to the Mb. Escarpment this winter...some of the side roads off Mountain Rd....but unfortunately didn't get out that far west. Never thought of the Gladstone area ...will have to check that out....maybe when the ice melts...for GBH.

I'm not terribly adept with computers (old codger ) and even though my kids have tried to show me how to post photo' far no success.
