Cranes migration over Jeddah, Saudi Arabia


Cranes in migration is a sight to behold.I recall seeing cranes in Istanbul Turkey in the early 1990s, circling and calling over the city. Also, in Jeddah, I saw cranesseveral times, where it is a stop on their route from Eurasia to Africa. Jeddah must be a conspicuous marker on the Red Sea coast, and among the Hijaz mountain range, and the deserts around it. They are seen over the al-Andalus district (Palestine Road), and the Old Airportarea. I have a video tape of them somewhere.

Red Fox in Ontario


Today, I saw my first Red Fox in Ontario. I was not aware that foxes were native to Ontario until this encounter.I was at the Laurel Creek Conservation Area, which is a nature area at the edge of the city of Waterloo, used for picnics, camping and other recreational activities here.On the way out, about 7:45 pm (one hour before sunset), we saw a fox crossing the road, and disappearing in the bushes. It had the typical dark extremities, and white tail tip.You can read more on the Red Fox in Ontario.
