I know Dave has been making some big promises about Wildlife Wednesdays.  It has been slow to get off the ground because I've felt underwhelmed by the wildlife we have seen so far.  Here is the tally:

On the way to Sudbury I fell asleep for 5 minutes, and during that time Dave saw a yearling black bear, dead on the road near Deep River.

On the train there were many false moose sightings by a few drunk guys in the dome car, and 3 actual moose far off in marshy areas.  During the frequent stops, black and yellow swallowtails, as well as monarch butterflies, flew past our windows.

As we pulled into Winnipeg, I spotted the first gopher of the journey, then promptly stopped counting gophers.

In Alberta I've noticed a lot of hares in the city, which have spawned a lot of jibes toward The Captain.  These monsters could probably eat The Captain for a snack though, that's why we left her safe and sound in Ottawa. 

Looking toward our avian friends, I spotted 4 pelicans and a cormorant near Medicine Hat.

We also spent a good day at the zoo.  Maybe I will discuss this more next week, depends on what kind of wildlife we run into this weekend.
