February was a strange month. There were a few very cold (typical for Feb), but there were some warm days including record highs.
The warmth brought one of the Parc Omega black bears out in the first week of the month. Apparently one of the cinnamon beras was out the day we were at the Parc too, but only after we had left. Bears out in February are a real eye catcher!
The arctic wolves were out and about in their drive through enclosure, first time we've had them so close for a long time.
There were a number of eye catching birds including an eye opening great blue heron who seemingly forgot to go south.

The bittersweet berries and basswood tree seeds were catching the eye walking the Petrie Island trails
