Lone Wolf on the Riverton Sandy Bar IBA

It is always nice to report something a bit different in one of Manitoba’s IBAs, and this is no exception. The Churchill and Vicinity IBA or the Saskatchewan River Delta IBA are probably the most likely places to see wolves within Manitoba’s IBA network. It was therefore a pleasant surprise to receive reports from Caretaker, Joanne Smith, late last Thursday, that she had spotted a Timber Wolf on the Riverton Sandy Bar IBA.

The series of photos below begin with the wolf, seemingly being closely watched by a Bald Eagle, as it walks on Lake Winnipeg. The Bald Eagle seems to then chase off a raven, before the wolf follows the sandbar towards solid land, and even a building in the final photo.

Thanks Joanne for the use of your photos, certainly makes a nice difference to post this on our website!
