I love the ecomuseum (in Ste Anne de Bellevue, here in Qc). I make my man go with me at least twice a year...

Here are some pics from today's visit (I figured you all would like 'em).

My favs: The snowy owls.

The red fox.. Not as hot, so he was more smiley...

Mr Blue Jay... He was wayyy more cooperative. He jumped onto the fence right in front of the camera.:)

Last one..
Mr Raccoon looking relieved after a good scratch.:thumbs up

It was great today because there was almost nobody there. I have more pics, but I'll give you all a rest (We got one of an albino snapping turtle... and a newt... :)).

Supposedly, for those of you who don't know, the Ecomuseum (part of McGill university) has is primarily local animals and is all animals that can no longer survive in the wild. They're injured or weak, so they stay there, being fed and basking in the sun. :) At least that's the story I like to believe.:thumbs up

WAIT!! I forgot the bears! I have to post at least one of the bears!

Here's one yawning (it's a hard life).:D

Lovely pics! The mid-dive duck is a great action shot, as is the yawning bear. Lucky animals, to be so pampered after a rough time of it (according to the story-and I choose to believe it,too. :D ).

Well, the last time we went (last fall) there was a caribou with an old gash on her side (nowhere to get a gash like that at the ecomuseum...), so I believed the story more when I saw that.:)

Have they taken the chains off the birds of prey there?

I had quite an argument about that with someone who works there the last time I visited.:mad:

I didn't visit the birds of prey... They're never out when we're there. Do you mean the ones outside? I don't know how they'd stick around if they weren't tied...

Here's my newt..:)
