As the water crashes in along the coastline of Hudson Bay near Churchill, Manitoba, the rocks along the rugged coastline begin to take on a frosty appearance. The shores become engulfed with ice and as the weather conditions become colder, the waters of the Hudson Bay will freeze over.
After that happens, the Polar Bears that lounge around Churchill, Manitoba will come to life and find every nook and cranny in the ice for a good meal. The coastline of Hudson Bay is very busy during the winter with wildlife action and days touring along the coastline can be extremely cold especially when the wind whistles through here.
The water makes its way over and around the rocks that adorn the coastline of the Hudson Bay and the foamy white waters are still able to make their presence known. This will not last much longer as each day around Churchill, Manitoba grows colder and soon the entire coastline will be a large ice mass and a vision of beauty.
This is just the beginning to a long frosty winter around Hudson Bay as you can still see sections of the ground amongst the ice crystals. Once winter truly sets in, you will not see much of the coastline for months which is just what Polar Bears are after.
When spring rolls around, the ice will start to thaw out which forces the Polar Bears back to the shores. The melting process around the Hudson Bay coastline seems to be happening a little bit sooner than it used to due to the climate change, which in turn could eventually hamper the lifestyles of the wildlife around Hudson Bay.
