All three of our locations are situated in park like setting. Edmonton has a large pond with ducks and geese in the summer. Calgary used to get deer probably sneaking down from Nose Hill Park but I think a spate of construction a few years ago blocked their routes. We still get grey partridges, duck, geese and white tailed jack rabbits. These pictures however are still from my trip to Edmonton.

With the single-minded perseverance
Of a blind man whose sight has been restored."
